Open Map
Chad Evans (TV18 Chief Meteorologist) will couple his love of the natural world with his expertise as a meteorologist to explore the role that weather and climate play in shaping the occurrence and diversity of Indiana's forest ecosystems. On this hike along the Celery Bog trails, he'll identify the trees found there and share how the occurrence of different tree species (and their health) is connected to not only soils, water and nutrients, but climate and weather events, too.
