Log Cabin Day Festival to kick off activities at wildlife refuge


The annual Log Cabin Day Festival kicks off National Wildlife Refuge Week at Muscatatuck National Wildlife Refuge on Saturday.

Held at the Myers Cabin, the event features a free ham and bean dinner, old-time crafts, music, a blacksmith, a storyteller, wildlife exhibits, quilts, and lots of kid-friendly activities.

The event will start at 10 a.m. and food will be served from 10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., or when it runs out. There is no cost to attend the festival which is sponsored by the Muscatatuck Wildlife Society.

Oct. 13-19 is National Wildlife Refuge Week – a time to explore and celebrate National Wildlife Refuges. In this area, there are two National Wildlife Refuges fairly close together – Muscatatuck in Jackson, Jennings and Monroe counties, and Big Oaks in Jennings, Ripley and Jefferson counties.

Several special events will be going on during the week at Muscatatuck National Wildlife Refuge.

On Sunday, “The Big Sit” bird count will take place at the Endicott Observation Deck. During normal refuge hours, visitors are invited to come out and count and record the birds they see. Bird lists can be emailed to [email protected] or left at the Refuge Visitor Center.

From Sunday through Oct. 19, the Muscatatuck Waterfowl Sanctuary Area will be open to walk-in visitors. Entries in the Muscatatuck Refuge Week Photography Contest will also be on display in the Muscatatuck Visitor Center.
