You don't have to travel to find nature

IBJ Letters To The Editor

I enjoyed reading Chris Katterjohn’s [Jan. 18 column] “Florida: more field trip than frolic.” I can certainly relate—almost all of my vacations are centered around nature. However, I have also learned that the exploration of natural areas can take place year-round, not just while on vacation.

Not only does Indiana boast a wonderful state park system, but there are dozens, if not hundreds, of nature preserves open to the public all around Indiana. The Central Indiana Land Trust, The Nature Conservancy and the Indiana Department of Natural Resources Division of Nature Preserves are just a few of the organizations that own and manage nature preserves in Indiana.

Many of our preserves are havens for bird-watchers, wildflower lovers, photographers and those just seeking a little peace and quiet in their busy lives. I hope you will consider exploring some of what nature has to offer right here in our own wonderful state!
