Fishery member event set for Sept. 25

Curious about fish in the reservoir? Over time, several unwanted species have placed negative pressures on the sport of fishery, and with that, DNR has implemented several management strategies to improve fishing quality. Join us as we welcome Ball State University Professor Thomas Lauer, Ph.D. on Friday, Sept. 25 from 6-8pm to learn more about these issues and the potential the park has to provide high-quality fishing opportunities. Wine & cheese will be provided, and you're welcome to bring guests. RSVP by Sept. 23 and learn more  HERE !

Foundation gives $4,500 for new bird migration game
Ornithology Center naturalists wanted to design an interactive experience for youth that supplemented programs in the classroom. So the Foundation gave $4,500 to support a new outdoor bird migration game area right outside of the center, on top of $11,000 donated by Cummins.  The game will mimic a flyway demonstrating different hazards birds might face en route to their breeding ground, which includes ropes, balance beams, climbing walls, streams and more! Watch for it to open this fall - self-guided tours will be open to families on the weekends as well.

After Labor Day...
Park gates will still open at 7am, but will start to close an hour early at 8:30pm, plus the park office will also not be open on Saturdays. If you know someone interested in a gate pass, the Foundation will offer them for only $25 (half-off) to members starting  next Tuesday, Sept. 8.  To reserve your pass, call us during the week (327.7116) or stop by the park office and ask for Sam. The easiest way to reserve your pass is online - -  at your convenience!
