Syracuse-Wawasee Trail Featured Event

Join us for a Next Indiana Campfires excursion on June 9th. Attendees will take a 90-minute stroll around Syracuse Lake. During the outing, Indiana’s Poet Laureate, Shari Wagner will serve as facilitator and lead attendees, stopping periodically to read aloud the words of important Hoosier authors. Along the way participants will experience traditional and contemporary lakeside architecture, a boardwalk along some wetlands, four town parks, a Carnegie library, and Syracuse’s vibrant downtown. The walk starts and ends at Lakeside Park, a popular destination for swimming, fishing and playing with kids, just across the street from the Syracuse Community Center and Historical Museum. Participants will then gather for food and drink at Lakeside Park to discuss connections between nature, literature and place. This excursion is part of Indiana Humanities’ Next Indiana Campfires, a statewide series connecting nature, literature and Indiana’s
Bicentennial. RSVP here
