Join us this weekend for the Hoosier Outdoor Experience!

Post date: Sep 14, 2010 1:31:3 PM

Once again, we hope everyone will be able to come out for the HOEX!  Remember, this is a FREE event and there will be lots of hands-on activities including mountain biking, archery, horse riding, camping, hiking, hunting, and all sort of other outdoor hobbies.  Bring the whole family anytime from 9AM-6PM on Saturday and Sunday, the 18th and 19th.


There is no cost, but please register online 

This helps the DNR know how many to expect and also helps them receive funding.


1.  Please email your availability (how many hours you’d like to volunteer and which times you are available, along with your preference to run the mini o meet or be a friendly face at the booth) to ASAP.

2.  Then, sign up with the DNR so they can do a background check and will let you volunteer.

Information for the day of the event:

Parking- Activity Providers and their volunteers park for free at the Defense Finance Center on southeast corner of 56th and Post Road... nothing special needed for parking.

Getting to the booth- Ride same free busses into park as the visitors.  Please allow at least 30 minutes to park, sign in, and ride to the booth!

 Check in as activity provider volunteers at Welcome Center (the busses will let everybody off at this same spot) look for volunteer check-in banner.

From there, the shuttles will take you right to the area where our booth is.  We’ll be at the bottom of the sledding hill, across from the Reddick Shelter House, same as last year.
