What we're about

From Rhonda:

This meetup will be for hikes, trips, coffee, gatherings or whatever speaks to you. It's really up to you. If you love nature and meeting people, this group is for you.
For the empath, intuitive, fun loving peep looking for nature connection, fitness and creative adventures. Stretching your wings a bit.

This would be for anyone who is earth loving, open minded looking for fun fitness adventure and connections. If you don't mind sometimes the desire to stop and smell the roses so to speak, this is the group for you.
We like to keep the conversation light and enjoy being in nature. It's about getting out, meeting people and having fun. We try to move as a group or be mindful of everyone's presence and pace. We will also go to festivals, art shows or other events that you might like to go to with a group.

Remember to enjoy the moment.

There are no fees for this meetup group, only entry fees at parks or other venues. If you would like to donate and help out with the cost, great but it is not required.
If you would like to host an event in this group, let me know and we can get that setup.

Please no soliciting the members of this group. This is a social group and not intended to promote any business or cause. Even if it is for a good cause, this group is for connecting and getting out into nature. Thank you for your understanding.

Remember to be respectful of everyone and respectful of everyone's individual presence and pace.

We have a Facebook page, search for Northern Indiana Outdoor Adventures and Social group 😊

I look forward to connecting with you.

I will keep the members list updated. This means if you are not on Meetup or visiting the group for over a year you will be removed. This is just to try and keep the list of active members. You are always welcome to rejoin.

Warren Dunes Hike

Floral Lane

We'll hike the trails at Warren Dunes, this is a more rugged hike with challenging sand dunes and a casual walk along the shore. I like to spend time by the beach, I'm really in no hurry 😊 looking at the stones and putting my feet in the water. We can go out to eat somewhere after if you have a place in mind. We can meet in the Parking lot off of Red Arrow Highway on Floral Lane, 1.5 miles North of the Warran Dunes Main Entrance or you can meet us at the Sawyer Garden Center a little before 1pm and we can carpool from there.
