Open house set at Jackson-Washington State Forest


An open house hosted by the Indiana Department of Natural Resources will be offered from 4 to 7 p.m. Oct. 25 at the Jackson-Washington State Forest office, 1278 E. State Road 250, Brownstown.

During the event, Hoosiers can learn about outdoor recreation available at Indiana’s state forests and how the properties’ professional foresters work to manage the properties for long-term forest health.

“These open houses provide Hoosiers with a chance to receive firsthand information about how Indiana’s state forests provide diverse wildlife habitat and recreational opportunities,” State Forester John Seifert said. “They also allow us to receive valuable feedback from our neighbors and users about state forest management. I encourage everyone to participate.”

A guided hike will be offered at 5 p.m. Attendees who want to go on the hike should meet at the forest office.

Property staff members also are often available during normal business hours of 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily. For contact information, visit
