The first weekend of spring was full of fun events. Friday night we had a huge group camp-out in the tropical greenhouse of the Potawatami Conservatory including potluck dinner, VIP tour of the IUSB observatory, an inflatable planetarium, and star gazing with local astronomer Chuck Bueter. Early morning we woke up and 11 went on a hike at Potato Creek State Park that covered a total of six miles of trail. Afterwards we headed back into town and had lunch at the Purple Porch Co-Op. A few of us still had a bit of energy left to burn and went on a two mile run on the River Walk Trail in Mishawaka before finally going home. With warm weather ahead, the fun has just begun.
