[DNR] Bicentennial Commission endorses State Parks & Reservoirs projects
Start Date: 3/10/2014Start Time: 12:00 AM
End Date: 3/10/2014End Time: 11:59 PM
Entry Description
Four projects that celebrate Indiana State Parks & Reservoirs and their history were recently endorsed as “Legacy Projects” by the Indiana Bicentennial Commission.

Legacy Projects strive to leave a lasting legacy in honor of Indiana’s Bicentennial in 2016. They are endorsed by the Bicentennial Commission on a quarterly basis.

The commission endorsed:

— “Ranger Lore,” a partnership with Traditional Arts Indiana to document the history of Indiana’s state parks and reservoirs through interviews with current and former DNR employees. The interviews will be archived in the Library of Congress for historical use.

— The creation of DVDs for “Treasures in Your Own Backyard,” to introduce viewers to the beauty of the state parks system and the people who have dedicated their lives to preserving them. “Treasures in Your Own Backyard” was produced for WTIU. The DVD can be purchased at innsgifts.com or in some state park inn gift shops.

— “Treasures in Your Own Backyard” centennial booklets inserted into Outdoor Indiana magazine. The booklet series has been included in the magazine since 2010 and will be completed as part of the centennial celebration of the state parks system in 2016. Booklets are available for purchase at innsgifts.com.

— Centennial events/weekend celebrations at each of the 32 State Parks & Reservoir properties.

A full list of endorsed Indiana Bicentennial Legacy Projects can be found at: Indiana2016.org.

Recently launched, Indiana2016.org is the official Indiana Bicentennial website.
