Free entry to State Parks

STAFF REPORT

Visitors can visit Indiana DNR properties for free on Saturday, Sept. 28 including State Parks, State Recreation Areas and Fish & Wildlife Areas for National Public Lands Day.

National Public Lands Day is the nation’s largest single-day volunteer effort involving public lands.

Volunteer opportunities at DNR properties on Sept. 28 include trail work at Clifty Falls State Park; tree flagging at Greene-Sullivan State Forest; invasive plant removals at Mississinewa Lake and Prophetstown and Chain O’Lakes state parks; clean-ups at Blue Grass FWA, Summit Lake State Park and Salamonie Lake; a river sweep at O’Bannon Woods State Park; and clearing archery lanes at J.E. Roush Lake FWA. Many other properties will offer similar volunteer opportunities.

There will also be events to help people engage with the properties. The day is a reminder that public lands are places for outdoor recreation, conservation, and making memories with families and friends. Events include hikes, pioneer activities, crafts, and live bird shows.

For a complete list of programs, visit calendar.dnr.IN.gov and look for Sept. 28.
