'Experience' the outdoors at September event


Mix a little kayaking with mountain biking, hiking, fly fishing, archery, target shooting, horseback riding, camping or just about any other outdoor activity you can imagine and what do you have?

The Hoosier Outdoor Experience.

The event, presented by the Indiana Department of Natural Resources and the Indiana Natural Resources Foundation, will be Sept. 26-27, at Fort Harrison State Park, a 1,700-acre oasis of woods, water and open green spaces on the outskirts of Indianapolis.

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

The Hoosier Outdoor Experience has something for everyone and a particular emphasis on welcoming newcomers to the outdoors. Beginners seeking entry-level knowledge and seasoned outdoor enthusiasts looking to recharge their spirit are bound to discover a wealth of opportunities and information.

This large-scale event brings together the Indiana DNR and Natural Resources Foundation, other government agencies, diverse organizations like the Indiana Heritage Trust, Indiana State Park Inns, Hoosier Mountain Bike Association, Indiana Deer Hunters Association, the Indiana Wildlife Federation, and dozens of other support groups, all with the shared purpose of showcasing the wealth of outdoor opportunities in the Hoosier state.

And here's perhaps the best part - parking, admission, and access to all activities, demonstrations and seminars are free.
