Explore Indiana's Wild Places

Attend one (or many!) outings in Indiana’s most diverse and beautiful landscapes. During each outing, a humanities scholar will lead you through a unique Hoosier landscape by foot, kayak or bike, pausing to read aloud the words of important Hoosier authors such as Gene Stratton-Porter, Scott Russell Sanders and Edwin Way Teale. After the excursion, gather around a campfire for a meal and an Upland Brewing Co. beer to discuss connections between nature, literature and place.

Costs range from $10-$15 for a hike or canoe trip to $200 for an overnight camping adventure in Morgan-Monroe State Forest. A limited number of fee waivers will be available for each excursion and will be awarded based on financial need. Please contact Leah Nahmias, director of programs and community engagement, at lnahmias@indianahumanities.org for details.
