Help with clean up at Wildlife Refuge

Everyone who enjoys the outdoors is invited to help clean up and improve the Muscatatuck National Wildlife Refuge on Sept. 30 in celebration of National Public Lands Day.

There will be work for volunteers of all ages and abilities and lunch will be provided.

The event will start at 9 a.m. at the refuge Visitor Center and go until at least noon (participants are welcome to work longer). Work projects will include trash pickup, landscaping, invasive species removal, work on a Children’s Nature Playground, seed collecting, and many other projects. Lunch will be provided to those that register in advance.

National Public Lands Day is a day set aside each year to celebrate our national system of parks, refuges, national forests, grasslands, and other recreation areas.

Muscatatuck is one of three national wildlife refuges in Indiana; the others are Big Oaks near Madison and the Patoka River near Oakland City.
