Indiana State Parks: Treasures in Your Own Backyard (2009) (DVD)
DVD; approx. 57 minutes
Celebrates Indiana state parks, introduces viewers to their vibrant beauty & the people who have dedicated their lives to preserving them for future generations.
Widely recognized as among the best in the country, Indiana state parks are a great source of Hoosier pride. Anyone who has visited Turkey Run, McCormick’s Creek, Indiana Dunes or any of the dozens of other state parks can’t help but marvel at their natural wonders.
Although we owe the parks’ raw beauty to glaciers and other natural forces, these wild areas would have vanished long ago if not for the largely behind-the-scenes efforts of the many people—park directors, conservationists, ecologists and others—who over the past century have worked to preserve some of Indiana’s most stunning natural landscapes.
INDIANA STATE PARKS: TREASURES IN YOUR OWN BACKYARD showcases and celebrates these wild lands, introducing viewers to their vibrant, natural beauty and the people who have dedicated their lives to preserving the parks for future generations.
Produced for WTIU/Indiana University Television by Ron Prickel.
