INDIANAPOLIS - The Nature Conservancy of Indiana is teaming with Honda to give Indiana residents with a love of exploring the state's natural wonders a chance to win a new hybrid car.
The Natural Treasures challenge began Friday and runs through Sept. 30 and will earn the sweepstakes' eventual winner a new Honda Civic Hybrid.
Participants can enter the sweepstakes by visiting as many as nine nature preserves around the state chosen for the challenge and take a "selfie" in that natural setting and upload that photo to the Natural Conservancy.
One entry is allowed per each of the nine sites. Participants can also enter one entry of a "selfie" of themselves at their favorite place in nature. The winner will be announced after Sept. 30.
