IN Humanities Adult Trek

Treking, campfire, beer and more!

On this adults-only trek, we’ll head out over the prairies that first drew Native Americans and white settlers to this bend along the White River. Together we’ll consider how this important water way connects us to the past and with other communities in the watershed today. Our trek will conclude a campfire meal and Upland Beers around a bonfire.

Each trek is co-led by a humanities scholar and a naturalist. Along the way, we stop to read short writings by Indiana nature writers. Each trek concludes with a shared meal and discussion around a campfire.

Your ticket price includes a campfire meal, Upland Brewing Co. beers and snacks from Bloomington’s Everyday Adventure Treats, in addition to any entrance or rental fees associated with the trek.


A limited number of free tickets are available based on need, please contact Leah Nahmias at lnahmias@indianahumanities.org.

Next Indiana Campfires pairs nature and literature to spark conversations about Indiana’s future. This year’s series is made possible by generous funding from the Nina Mason Pulliam Charitable Trust; we are proud to be a part of a consortium of Central Indiana organizations helping Hoosiers to access and appreciate the White River. We are also grateful to our friends at Upland Brewing Co. for providing us with delicious, cold beer and The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation for additional support. www.IndianaHumanities.org/Campfires

Indiana Humanities connects people, opens minds and enriches lives by creating and facilitating programs that encourage Hoosiers to think, read and talk. www.IndianaHumanities.org
