Indiana Humanities “Campfire”

September 14 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Indiana Humanities’ Campfires pair nature and literature to spark conversations about Indiana’s future.  Each Campfires trek is co-led by a humanities scholar and a naturalist. Along the way, we’ll stop to read short writings by nature writers. Each trek concludes with a shared meal and discussion around a campfire.

At Munsee Woods, we’ll explore a half-mile natural trail through a mature forest and spend time in a renovated lodge. Situated west of Prairie Creek Reservoir, the 48-acre Munsee Woods is a former Girl Scout camp turned nature preserve that’s protected by the Red-tail Land Conservancy. In 2011, Munsee Woods became Delaware County’s first dedicated state nature preserve and has been used as a gathering place for education and outdoor recreation ever since. Munsee Woods includes majestic older woods, wetlands and streams, which have inspired a love of the outdoors in generations of Girl Scouts as well as visitors to the preserve today.

Your ticket price of $20 includes a campfire meal, Upland Brewing Co. beers, and snacks for the trail in addition to any entrance or rental fees associated with the trek. This is a 21+ event.

Tickets must be purchased in advance. To purchase your ticket, visit: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/campfires-munsee-woods-selma-tickets-789258362007
