New Outdoor Indiana flies high for spring

Indiana DNR Press Release:

March, as most everyone knows, is the best time to fly kites … or is it?

Find out how, when and where to kite, and where to get the most flights for your money, in the March-April issue of Outdoor Indiana magazine, which blows onto newsstands this week. You'll find expert advice from the Hoosier Kite Society, as well as the tale of "The Kite Man of Indiana," who once influenced the pastime nationwide from his home in Farmland.
Longtime fans of state parks can turn to an essay by Dan Bortner, director of the DNR Division of State Parks and Reservoirs, musing about childhood visits to Spring Mill State Park with his family. His father Ron, whose photos accompany the text, was a freelance photographer whose work graced the magazine's cover numerous times.
Mountain bikers from beginner to expert can learn how they can compete against riders of their own talent level throughout the state in the DINO (Do INdiana Off-road) series.
No matter what your interests, these articles and others in the full-color, 48-page Outdoor Indiana will give you ideas and insights on how to best enjoy Indiana's outdoors, particularly as the weather warms.
Available at most Borders and Barnes & Noble's bookstores, the magazine sells for $3 an issue. A subscription costs $12 for one year, $20 for two years. Single issues also can be purchased by calling (317) 233-3046. See to subscribe or for more information.
