INDIANAPOLIS (Inside INdiana Business) — The Indiana Destination Development Corp., the Indiana Department of Natural Resources and Lt. Gov. Suzanne Crouch have partnered to launch the Indiana State Nature Passport.
The free initiative encourages Hoosiers to enjoy the outdoors and visit new places and to sign up online to receive prizes for visiting several sites in the state.
“Indiana is blessed with unique places and remarkable natural features,” Crouch said in a statement. “From State Parks to forests and lakes, this passport includes almost 60 scenic locations to explore.”
Participants in the program can check in from a smartphone at one of the assigned passport locations and receive various prizes after checking in to 10, 25 and 40 visits, and another prize to check in at all 59 locations.
According to Visit Indiana staff, in just a week’s time, nearly 6,000 people have already signed up and that includes visitors from 16 different states.
“Whether you enjoy hiking, biking, horseback riding or watching wildlife, there is something for everyone,” said Elaine Bedel, the secretary and chief executive officer of the Indiana Destination Development Corp. “And no matter what time of the year or season, there is always a new place to discover nature’s authentic adventures.”
Participants will also have a chance to win giveaway prizes.
