May 3 – 5:30pm – Next Indiana Campfire: Hike + Literature at Hanover College

Date: May 3, 2017
Time: 5:30 pm


Next Indiana Campfires is a statewide series of hikes and padding trips that pair nature and literature to ignite conversations about Indiana’s future. This spring, the popular program is coming to Hanover College! During our trek, we’ll follow the Daryl R. Karns Natural History Trail as it wends its way along the Ohio River and through Hanover College’s beautiful wooded campus, stopping along the way to read short texts by Indiana environmental writers. Following our hike, we’ll gather around a campfire and meal as the sun sets over the river’s famous S curve, depicted in an 1892 T.C. Steele painting.

Tickets cost $15 and include meal, Upland Beers, and a chance to explore new ideas with other engaged Hoosiers. Events are designed for adults and recommended for ages 12 and up. Click here to sign-up.

This Indiana Humanities event was created in partnership with Hanover College and Oak Heritage Conservancy.


This event is part of our Great Events in the Great Outdoors series. We’ve teamed up with five other conservation-minded groups and we couldn’t be happier about this diverse list of activities. Be sure to check out other events on the calendar. They continue throughout the Spring (canoe trips! fossil hunts! bike rides!). We hope you’ll join us for one of these fun, hands-on programs.
