    Register Now for Guided, Spring Hikes at Nature Preserves

    The DNR Division of Nature Preserves is offering guided hikes at nature preserves across the state on April 20, Earth Day, and May 11, which is Mother’s Day weekend.

    Registration is open now for the hikes and runs through April 6. Space is limited, so participants are encouraged to register early.

    The hikes are free and start at 10 a.m. local time. Participants will experience spring wildflowers in bloom and old-growth forests.

    The hikes are at the following state nature preserves: Calli; Eagle’s Crest, in Eagle Creek Park in Indianapolis; Donaldson’s Woods, in Spring Mill State Park; Dunes, in Indiana Dunes State Park; Olin Lake; Shrader-Weaver; Rocky Hollow-Falls Canyon, in Turkey Run State Park; and Warbler Woods, in Fort Harrison State Park.

    Visiting these unique and beautiful nature preserves would be a great way to celebrate Earth Day and Mother’s Day weekend.
