Teaching children about the natural world should be treated as one of the most important events in their lives. --Thomas Berry
Whether teacher, librarian, youth group leader, family member or community leader, your interest in nature makes a positive and lasting effect on the children in your life. Expanding a child’s understanding of our natural world can help him or her appreciate nature so that they want to help care for it.
You are invited to participate in The Children of Indiana Nature Park project, using the deeds and the resources on this website to invite children to get outdoors so they can learn to love the land. To introduce you to these resources and get you started on your nature journey with your classroom, we have recorded an introductory video about the Children of Indiana Nature Park for teachers.

Thank you for helping reconnect Hoosier kids to nature!
