Staff Report
This summer, we at Conner Prairie are going to dive deeper into all of our outdoor experience areas with social media posts about all the things you can see and do at Conner Prairie.

For the next two weeks, we’ll focus in on our newest experience area, Treetop Outpost, which will be seeing some exciting changes this month.


New hands-on, interactive activities are planned to be added to Treetop Outpost throughout the month of May.

Treetop Outpost opened nearly a year ago and it’s been a huge hit with visitors. The area features a four-story, 45-foot-tall tree house nestled in the woods along the White River. It’s surrounded by hands-on areas to dig, explore natural materials, create art and make music. Treetop Outpost also links up with our Nature Walk, which takes visitors on a scenic hike out to a lookout over the prairie with a great view of William Conner House.


Inside the main level of Treetop Outpost, visitors can experience and learn about Indiana’s natural resources.

This summer, we’ll be adding some new features to Treetop Outpost, from new activities in the tree house itself to expansions of activities featured on the ground.

Over the next two weeks, we’ll take a look at what’s new and what’s coming up. There’s so much to explore at Treetop Outpost and we can’t wait to give you a sneak peek.

Be sure to follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to learn more about the exciting updates.
