Students and the public are invited to photograph various natural formations and fauna throughout Warren County. The photos will be displayed permanently at the county courthouse. The Historical Society will provide captions relating historical information and location. Copies of the photos will be placed in the county’s libraries, museum and website for future reference purposes and programs. The photos and information will also be available to anyone upon request.

The goal of this project is to highlight the diversity of Indiana’s landscape by showing natural features that are unique to Warren County. Local organizations that are involved include: MSD of Warren County, 4-H, NICHES, Williamsport and West Lebanon public libraries, Warren County commissioners and the Warren County Historical Society.
