We are pleased to announce that the Annual Dinner is completely sold out. We are grateful to our many supporters. If you missed this chance to join in the fun, we hope you will join us next time!

APhotographicSurveyoftheAmericanYard_0706APhotographicSurveyoftheAmericanYard_0704APhotographicSurveyoftheAmericanYard_0700The photos are sepia toned and so detailed that they almost appear to be line drawings. Joshua White’s photos focus on often overlooked objects like seedpods and insects. The photos encourage us to pause and consider these “background objects.”

His collection, “Photographic APhotographicSurveyoftheAmericanYard_0721 (1)Survey of the American Yard,” was featured in National Geographic in August 2015.

White grew up in southeast Indiana, near Aurora. He now teaches at Appalachian State University in North Carolina, but he’s travelling to Indiana to present at our Annual Dinner on October 15th at 6:30pm. White says he is honored to help promote conservation in Indiana.

White is sure to impress, but he is not the only highlight of the evening.

Our setting is a recently restored nineteenth-century church in historic Lower Madison, now called Poplar Place. Admission includes White’s presentation, a fine dining experience, a silent auction with quality items, and an update on our progress, including newly protected land, programs for the public, and partnerships.

Only 60 seats are available, so reservations are required. Invite friends, and share a lovely evening together. To RSVP, send a check for $30 per guest to OHC, P.O. Box 335, Hanover, Indiana 47243. We hope you will join us!

As always, feel free to email us with questions!
