Join us for a walk on Friday, May 20, from 8:30 to 10:30 a.m. on Endangered Species Day, celebrated worldwide by wildlife refuges, zoos, aquariums, gardens, schools, libraries, museums, community groups, nonprofits and individuals.

When a species is defined as endangered, its numbers are unusually low—in the last few thousands, hundreds or even tens. And when the last of the species is gone, they are gone for good.

Endangered Species Day reminds us to take the time to learn about why it’s so important to protect endangered species from any further harm.

Celebrate Endangered Species Day in Nature

Join The Nature Conservancy and the Indiana Department of Natural Resources staff for a guided tour of a very special nature preserve not usually accessible to the public, Pine Station Nature Preserve.

Our goal for the day is to identify 17 different species—birds, plants, reptiles and insects—to celebrate the 17th anniversary of Endangered Species Day. 

This family-friendly event is FREE, but RSVPs are required. RSVP before May 18, as this event is limited to 17 participants, due to the sensitive nature of the preserve. Driving and parking directions will be provided with your registration confirmation.
