Flier for Nature StoreBoth the Bedford and Tell City offices have outlet stores for the sale of interpretive items such as field guides, environmental education items and books, Hoosier NF souvenirs, nature puppets, and books on a wide assortment of nature topics.  The profits from the sales of these items go to fund interpretive projects on the Hoosier.  The inventory in the stores is owned by the Eastern National Forest Interpretive Association (ENFIA) who manage outlet stores in national forest offices throughout the eastern United States.  ENFIA has also funded several successful projects on the Forest including the kiosk and interpretive panels at the Rickenbaugh House, signage at Pioneer Mothers Memorial Forest and Books Cabin, and the prehistory coloring book available from our office.

A few of the items from the store are available on line at http//www.enfiamich.org.

Teachers get a 10% discount on all purchases.
