Outside Influence

On an overcast and misty Sunday afternoon, 16 women hiked for nearly an hour along a trail at Ferdinand State Forest. Kris Lasher, Natalie Combs and Adrienne Highhouse organized “Women in the Woods,” a women-only hike and concert, which was sponsored by Friends of Ferdinand State Forest, Project ACORN and the Indiana Forest Alliance. Beth Klem, left, assisted 9-year-old Maya Anderson, both of Huntingburg, across a stream while Klem’s daughter Kacie of Ferdinand waited her turn at the end of the hike. “We thought this was something that (women) might not normally do,” Combs said of the hike. “Let’s show them a pristine park and get people out here to enjoy it.”
