Muncie, IN – BY5, in collaboration with Indiana Children and Nature Network, will once again host Nature Play Days in Delaware County from June 8-June 16. Nature Play Days is a totally free, week-long series of over fifty free nature-based events to encourage families to get outside and play, bond, and explore their community.

There are a range of experiences to choose from. This year’s events include everything from exploring a rare orchid greenhouse, to visiting a historic petting zoo, participating in scavenger hunts, to attending various nature story times.

Delaware County families who visit three or more events are eligible to enter a Grand Prize Drawing. Simply pick up a Nature Play Days Adventure Guide at any Delaware County Nature Play Days event in June, then receive a participation sticker at each event. After receiving three stickers, turn in your Adventure Guide to the Cardinal Greenway–Wysor Street Depot. Winners will be selected on June 16 at the Depot.
