Indiana state forests to host open houses starting this month
Start Date: 4/10/2017
Event Description:
People interested in how Indiana's state forests operate can share their views at a series of open houses starting this month.

Throughout the year, open houses will be held at the following state forests (SF) and state recreation areas (SRA): Clark SF and Deam SRA; Ferdinand SF; Greene-Sullivan SF; Harrison-Crawford SF; Jackson-Washington SF and Starve Hollow SRA; Martin SF; Morgan-Monroe SF and Yellowwood SF; Owen-Putnam SF; Pike SF; Salamonie River SF, Frances Slocum SF and Selmier SF.

At each event, the DNR Division of Forestry will provide information about recreation, major projects, forest resource management, and planning. Attendees can talk with DNR personnel or, if they prefer, submit written comments. Some open houses will include a facilities tour, guided hike, or interpretive program.

"These open houses provide Hoosiers with a chance to receive first-hand information about how state forests provide diverse wildlife habitat, forest products 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 who has an interest to participate."
