[DNR] Mounds SP to host nature and arts weekend, April 12-13
Start Date: 4/12/2014Start Time: 7:00 PM
End Date: 4/13/2014End Time: 9:00 PM
Entry Description
A weekend at Mounds State Park devoted to nature and the arts will debut with a gallery-style event on Saturday, April 12.

The gallery will feature more than 100 works submitted in the park’s poetry and photo contest earlier this spring. Each submission will be displayed and winners will be recognized during the event, which runs from 7 to 9 p.m. at the nature center. Participating poets can read their pieces. Light refreshments will be provided.

The festivities will continue on Sunday, April 13. The gallery will remain open and visitors can browse at their leisure. From 2 to 4 p.m., local artists Stacy Savage and Kathy Gerstorff will launch their new book, “Naturally Yours,” a collection of poems, short stories and anecdotes from a variety of contributors and featuring Indiana state parks. Contributors will read their work, and there will be an open-mic session for anyone interested in reading nature-themed work.

Proceeds from the sale of “Naturally Yours” go to the Discovering the Outdoors Fund, which helps pay for students to visit Indiana State Parks & Reservoirs for educational field trips. Bourke Patton, executive director of the Indiana Natural Resources Foundation, will attend the event.

These events are free of charge, though the standard park entrance fee of $5 per in-state vehicle and $7 per out-of-state vehicle applies.

Mounds State Park (stateparks.IN.gov/2977.htm) is at 4306 Mounds Road, Anderson, 46017.
