INDIANAPOLIS, Ind.—Nature enthusiasts can get up close and personal with wildlife by perusing over 100 photographs at the Eagle Creek Park Foundation’s 8th annual “Images of Nature” photography exhibit and sale from Saturday, Sept. 20 through Sunday, Sept. 28.

The Riviera Camera Club presents the nature-based event at the park’s Earth Discovery Center, 5901 Delong Road. Exhibit hours are Monday through Saturday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday, 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.

A percentage of proceeds from sales support the construction of a new Earth Discovery Center geothermal educational pond, on behalf of the Eagle Creek Park Foundation. The pond will allow visitors and large school groups of up to 75 students to dip net for frogs, tadpoles and aquatic insects.

Every year, the nature center attracts over 80,000 visitors, and accommodates 6,000+ students on field trips that participate in environmental programming.
