New Outdoor Indiana issue features 2009 calendar


New Outdoor Indiana issue features 2009 calendar


Seems everyone wants to give you a calendar these days. Usually it's full of stale illustrations of somewhere else that you've seen used somewhere else before but you're not quite sure where.

It's time to change that tradition and the pull-out calendar in the November-December issue of Outdoor Indiana magazine, available at newsstands this week, is the place to for a truly Hoosier calendar.

The 2009 calendar, which documents the magazine's 75th anniversary, boasts living-color original photos of stirring outdoor scenes from all around your state, as well as a listing of upcoming outdoor events to help you make the most of the coming new year, right here in Indiana.

This keepsake issue of the bimonthly 48-page full-color publication also features editor Phil Bloom's look at the legacy of the Civilian Conservation Corps, the Great Depression-era government program (1933-42) whose workers are responsible for many of the features of Indiana's state parks. One of those is Pokagon State Park's Spring Shelter, a modern-day photo of which graces the new issue's cover.

Fans of Pokagon or people who have ever considered visiting this park in Angola, which features many cold-weather activities, will want to pick up this issue, which also offers a back-cover photo of the same Spring Shelter shortly after its construction, as well as park history in Bloom's article, and a December calendar shot of the park's cozy Potawatomi Inn.

Available at most Borders and Barnes & Noble's stores, the magazine sells for $3 an issue. A subscription costs $12 for one year, $20 for two years. Single issues or the calendar alone, which sells for $10, can be purchased by calling (317) 233-3046. See OutdoorIndiana.org to subscribe or for more information.
