Happy Earth Day, Indiana! As many Hoosiers know, our state has a wealth of natural beauty. Author Steven Higgs has personally explored 119 wild and natural areas in southern Indiana, and shares his expertise on these places in his new book A Guide to Natural Areas of Southern Indiana. Featuring 95 beautiful color photos and 5 maps, this comprehensive guidebook provides ideas for a lifetime of fun and exploration, and makes planning easy by including directions to the areas, offering suggestions on what to do when you arrive, and what you will find when you get there.
We'd like to encourage you to get out this weekend and visit the places Higgs writes about in his book. As an incentive, we're hosting an Earth Day photo contest for a chance to win a copy of A Guide to Natural Areas of Southern Indiana! Here are the details on how to enter:
- Check out the list of places featured in the book.
