The Junior Indiana Master Naturalist Program provides children with many hands-on opportunities to learn about Indiana’s natural resources in an outdoor setting. It also provides a way for them to discover environmental stewardship through volunteer service.

The mission of the JrIMN is to bring together natural resource specialists with young people, age 8-12 years, to foster an understanding of Indiana’s plants, water, soils and wildlife, and promote volunteer service in local communities.

Class size will be limited to 25 students and the fee for the day camp is $70 per student. Pre-register is due by July 7.

For registration or to learn more about the program, contact Jody Heaston, State Parks and Reservoirs Volunteer Coordinator, at or 260-437-8650 or visit Ouabache State Park.
