thanks for visiting endangeredDelCo.com –
an illustrated knowledgebase helping connect local folks & local nature in Delaware County, Indiana.
Okay, I know Muncie isn't home to rainforests and okapis, but our waterways, forests, & prairies are home to endangered species, too. Look for rusty-patched bumble bees on nature walks, wavyrayed lampmussels in our West Fork White River, and northern long-eared bats foraging on summer nights. This website is all about learning, creating, exploring, collabing, & enjoying local nature – safe from mosquitoes and poison ivy!
Read more about the website's mission, its artist & developer (that's me), and why content is free.
hint: opportunities to learn about & connect with nature should be accessible to everyone in our community!
