More HRI acres open to public in time for youth turkey season
Start Date: 4/21/2017
Event Description:
The DNR will open an additional 1,150 acres for public use along the Wabash River in Parke, Vermillion and Vigo counties, just in time for Indiana’s youth turkey season.

The new properties will open on April 22. Youth turkey season is April 22-23. The standard spring turkey season runs April 26-May 14.

The new properties, acquired through the DNR’s Healthy Rivers INitiative (HRI), will increase the acreage of Wabashiki and Fairbanks Landing fish & wildlife areas and the Wabash River Conservation Area.

More than 13,600 acres have been opened to the public through HRI since the conservation project began in 2010. Since 2010, HRI has acquired a combined 14,919 acres in the Wabash River, Sugar Creek and Austin Bottoms conservation areas. Combined with existing state-owned properties and land enrolled in federal conservation easements, more than 35,841 acres now have permanent conservation protection within the HRI project area.

Updated property maps with new acreage are at:
—Fairbanks Landing Fish & Wildlife Area:
