Hoosier Outdoor Experience, September 26th & 27th

The Indiana Department of Natural Resources and the Natural Resources Foundation is sponsoring the Hoosier Outdoor Experience at the Fort Harrison State Park on the east side of Indianapolis on September 26th & 27th.

Fort Harrison State Park is 1,700 acres of woods, water and open green spaces, and you can try mountain biking, hiking, fly fishing, archery, kayaking, target shooting, horseback riding, camping or anything else you can think of. For free.

All of it. Every last bit of it. Parking, admission, activities, demonstrations, and seminars are all free to the public. And with the great fall weather we’ve been having, now is an ideal time to spend tramping around the woods.

According to the DNR website,

There’s never been an event like this in Indiana – two full days to wrap your arms around the great outdoors with hands on educational opportunities and skill-building activities focusing on natural resource conservation, outdoor ethics and responsibility.

You can even download a copy of the Hoosier Outdoor Experience Guide.
