City of Indianapolis Nature Challenge

 

https://www.facebook.com/events/1276612512439436/

The City Nature Challenge is an effort for cities to find and document as much urban nature as possible by challenging residents to become citizen scientists: Residents are asked to explore their area (backyard, playgrounds, parks, etc.) for plants and bugs/animals, document their findings (take a photo), and report them (via the iNaturalist website or app). The underlying objective of this event is to develop a new baseline of a city's biodiversity and to monitor how exactly change is accelerating.

The City Nature Challenge will be April 27-30, 2018 and will be undertaken in dozens of cities across the world this year, and Indianapolis will be one of those cities competing in this international event!

More details will be coming throughout the month, and you can find all of them on the page below!

10th Annual Greening the Statehouse

Join HEC as we celebrate a decade of hosting our annual forum, Greening the Statehouse! This year’s event will be held at the Hendricks County Fairgrounds Conference Center in Danville, Indiana.

Greening the Statehouse (GTS) is Indiana’s largest annual gathering of environmental-minded citizens! Your best opportunity to get up to speed on Indiana’s environment, to celebrate our movement’s successes, and to meet kindred spirits from across the state.

This year's keynote speaker, Mitch Hescox, will have a powerful story to share: While he spent his early years in the fossil fuel business, he has transformed into one of America's leading conservative advocates for climate action. As head of the Evangelical Environmental Network, he has spoken strongly in favor of renewable energy, clean air & clean water policies. We know his important message will inspire all of us to continue to build a broad-based movement for positive change in Indiana!
