Go Take a Hike!
You don’t have to fly across the nation. Stick around for a statecation!
Are you wondering what to do this year?
Last year, travel plans for almost everyone were turned upside down. While the outlook for travel is better in 2021, there are still plenty of reasons to stay close to home in our amazing state.
The Nature Conservancy (TNC) is partnering with 92.3 WTTS to get the word out about cool places in Indiana that are brimming with native flora and fauna to recharge your soul and inspire a love for nature.
Fun day trips around your area can also help your local economy.
The Nature Conservancy is highlighting several preserves and nature places around the state that represent different types of habitat where you can go with family and friends to take in the pure and natural beauty of Indiana.
