How I Love My Land
What do you love about nature? The wild animals? The smell of a pine tree or wildflowers? Leaves growing large and green on tree branches or watching them change color in the fall? The trickling of a stream or the buzzing of insects? Let us know what you love about nature and what you do to take care of our natural world!
We need to take care of nature so nature will take care of us. How do you care for nature? Whether it is cleaning up trash, planting native plants, exploring a natural area, or volunteering for nature events we know you are great stewards for our natural world! If you are not already involved, let us know what you plan to do.
We want to see how you love your land. Share your photos on Facebook. Tag the Children of Indiana Nature Park and use the hashtag #ILoveMyLand. And remember to make your posts public so we can see them! We’ll share your great photos on our Facebook page!
