Experience the Experience
The fourth annual Hoosier Outdoor Experience, which is free to all participants, rolls into Indianapolis' Fort Harrison State Park this Saturday and Sunday.
With 20,000 or more expected, logistics are important, especially for first-timers. Keep your eye on Facebook.com/HoosierOutdoorExperience
, which will host a question-and-answer session tomorrow, Sept. 11, at 2 p.m. EDT, and post updates throughout the week and the event.
During the Experience, roughly 50 outdoor activities will be offered. Parking, admission and activities are free. All activities take place in the state park's spacious 1,700-acre wooded escape.
Activities ranging from archery and target shooting to mountain biking, fishing, paddling and more await participants.
The free fun runs 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. each day, and is presented by the DNR and the Indiana Natural Resources Foundation. The goal is to introduce people to outdoor activities they may have never tried.
Online advance registration at HoosierOutdoorExperience.IN.gov
is requested to assist with staffing and planning.
