Soar, slither and shop with DNR at state fair
--------------------------------------------------------

See soaring hawks, slithering snakes and whopper live fish at the 2005
Indiana State Fair Natural Resources Building.

The famous and gigantic DNR wild fish aquariums, with new aquatic ecosystem
dioramas, will once again be swimming with thousands of wild fish.

Hungry fairgoers can taste wild fish and game at the Taste of the Wild
Cookout, at 11 a.m. Aug. 13. At the cookout, Hoosier sportsmen and women
provide venison chili, steelhead trout, beaver barbecue, turtle soup and
more.

O'Bannon Woods naturalist Jarrett Manek returns on Aug. 19 and 20, from Noon
to 5 p.m., with his fair-favorite Snakes Alive! program.

At 5 p.m. Aug. 16, cute but serious DNR resource dogs show how they track
poachers and find illegal game.

Bring your stone arrowheads, mysterious clay beads or pottery shards to the
Natural Resources Building front porch for ID by state archeologists on
Saturday Aug. 20, from 2 to 4 p.m. DNR scientists will share what they know
in a format similar to the popular PBS Antique Road Show, except no
financial appraisals will be provided.

Savvy outdoorsy folk can stalk bargains on unique rustic furniture, outdoor
wear, art, hiking sticks, jewelry, field guides and more at the earthy
Mother Nature's Mercantile inside the air-conditioned DNR building.

Daily natural and history programs give parents a chance to take an
educational breather with the kids. The Natural Resources Building is
outside of the northwest corner of the State Fair horse track. Check out a
DNR program during your state fair adventure.
