Indiana Humanities has announce the list of locations for its award-winning “Next Indiana Campfires” series of walks that pairs literature with nature to help Hoosiers explore Indiana’s natural environment and spark conversations about conservation and stewardship. The fourth annual event is funded in part by a grant from the Nina Mason Pulliam Charitable Trust. This year’s focus on various locations within the White River watershed and along northern Indiana lakes to explore the state’s urban and rural landscapes includes one location in Midtown.
Saturday, June 15: White River (Broad Ripple to Rocky Ripple)
Don a life vest and hop aboard a raft for this easy float through the Broad Ripple and Rocky Ripple neighborhoods in Indianapolis. Participants will start at the Indianapolis Art Center, make a stop at Holliday Park to discover the trails and nature that thrive right in the center of the city and conclude with lunch and discussion at Rocky Ripple Town Hall.
Each event costs $15-20 and includes food and an Upland Brewing beer (available to those 21 and over). Details on the statewide program are available online.
