Children of Indiana Bicentennial Park is a signature project developed in conjunction with The Nature Conservancy. In 2016, every Indiana school age child will receive an honorary deed to a square-meter plot in the park. This land will be reclaimed and preserved as part of Indiana’s natural beauty. Students will have access to a website where they can visit their plot of land and watch its transformation. Interactive educational content is being developed to coincide with the opening of the park.
