New Outdoor Indiana cover shot isn't Lake Michigan

Indiana DNR Release:

No. That is not a photo of a three-masted ship anchored in a Lake Michigan bay on the cover of the May-June issue of Outdoor Indiana magazine, which goes on sale Friday.

It's Lake Maxinkuckee. The ship's the R.H. Ledbetter, a square rigger that Culver Academies uses for teaching purposes. Learn more in the issue's photo essay.

The DNR Division of Nature Preserves, which is celebrating its 40th anniversary, is featured in a full-length article that contains 36 color photos and tells the story of how the DNR safeguards some of Indiana's unique places and how to enjoy them.

Available at most Borders and Barnes & Noble's bookstores and many DNR properties, the 48-page bi-monthly 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 call for more information.
