Visit us at SpringFest....next year! 

Inspired by Dr. Ximena Bernal's PokéBio project, ISF featured Indymon trading cards highlighting species native to Indiana and listed on Indiana Division of Fish & Wildlife endangered and special concern species list during SpringFest 2024. Visitors were able to collect Indymon cards from some of our campus partner sites through Springfest, emphasizing the collaborative and transdisciplinary work in sustainability research across campus. If you are an ISF campus partner, and are interested in partnering with us on this activity at SpringFest 2025, please email us at isf@purdue.edu
