Mississinewa Lake Hosts Open House April 11
Start Date: 4/11/2019Start Time: 5:00 PM
Event Description:

The DNR Division of State Parks will host an open house at Mississinewa Lake’s Miami State Recreation Area property office on Monday, April 11, from 5 to 7 p.m. to answer questions about an upcoming forest-improvement project.

The project will remove, through a salvage sale, approximately 21 acres of standing trees that were damaged by flooding during the summer of 2015. The trees to be removed are scattered throughout the property. The trees are in areas that are not usually flooded, but the near-record high water that summer, coupled with the length of time that the trees were underwater, compounded the damage so that they will not recover.

Proceeds from the salvage sale will be used exclusively to fund habitat restoration and diversity projects at Mississinewa Lake.

DNR staff will be on hand with maps and other information related to the project and to answer any questions. They will also address other upcoming property improvements. Comments or questions may also be directed to SPResourceProjects@dnr.IN.gov by Friday, April 26, 2019. 

Mississinewa Lake (on.IN.gov/mississinewalake) is at 4673 S. 625E. Peru, 46970.
