What about the old Hoosier Quest program?
Our former Hoosier Quest program (Discover, Connect, Explore) will be honored through 2015 for participants who started it before July 2014. After that date, the new version will be the only version offered. It is designed to be much easier to follow, and allows many more choices for active participation.
Is there a program for my group (scouts, youth group, etc)?
Yes. The Hoosier Pathfinder Patch Program is designed for any group wishing to earn a patch while hiking or working on a service project in one of several selected Indiana State Parks, State Forests and State Reservoirs. To learn more about the program, view the brochure.
Can adults participate in all three programs?
Absolutely! Many of the activities involved in each program can be taken to a more advanced adult level. Talk with an interpreter at your favorite park or reservoir for more information.
