Conservation event set at Muscatatuck


A program for anyone with an interest in conservation will be from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Wednesday at Muscatatuck National Wildlife Refuge, 12985 U.S. 50 East, Seymour.

The morning session of the Celebration Happenings gathering will feature lightning round speakers, who will take the floor for five minutes to share recent progress in conservation. The topics range from education efforts with rural and urban youth to an update about efforts to protect hellbender salamanders and marshbirds.

In the afternoon, participants will break into groups to talk together to learn from one another and find ways to collaborate in the coming year.

Lunch will be provided by the Muscatatuck Wildlife Society and Big Oaks Conservation Society. The event, organized by the refuge, Indiana Department of Natural Resources, Oak Heritage Conservancy and Franklin College, is open to the public.

The event and lunch are free, but RSVPs are required. RSVP online at or by calling Brad Feaster of Indiana DNR at 812-512-9258.
