Get tree-smart Sept. 21-22 at Hoosier Outdoor Experience

That tree looks great. But what kind is it?

DNR Forestry experts will explain how to answer that question during guided tree identification hikes, which debut at the fifth annual Hoosier Outdoor Experience, Sept. 21-22, at Fort Harrison State Park in Indianapolis.

The hikes are one of more than 50 outdoor activities offered free. Activities include just about everything from archery and target shooting, to mountain biking, horseback riding, fishing and kayaking. All equipment is provided. All activities, parking and admission are free.

About 25,500 people attended last year. Room for more participants awaits in the heavily wooded, spacious, historic 1,700 acres of former Army base. Participants can even bring their own food, although food booths will be selling their specialties.  

The event runs 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. each day.

For advance registration go to hoosieroutdoor

experience.IN.gov.

For questions about volunteering, contact volunteer coordinator Cheryl Hampton, 317-233-1002, champton@dnr.IN.gov.

Fort Harrison State Park is at 5753 Glenn Road, Indianapolis.
