Legacy Projects > Gene Stratton-Porter Wildlife Viewing Area Gene Stratton-Porter Wildlife Viewing Area

Wildlife viewing center

The Gene Stratton-Porter Wildlife Viewing Area outside of the Carriage House Visitor’s Center will provide a unique look into the daily lives of Indiana’s most common and beloved wildlife – birds, squirrels, chipmunks and other creatures. This area will include numerous feeders, a water feature and native plants. While providing a safe and quiet place for wildlife to feed, drink and bathe; curious human visitors will have a comfortable viewing spot from inside the GSP Carriage House Visitor’s Center to enjoy learning more about Indiana’s wildlife. 

Q&A with Legacy Project Coordinator Dave Fox

What do you consider the key accomplishment(s) of your Legacy Project?

  • Allowing visitors to enjoy the birds and other wildlife no matter the weather has been a great addition to the GSP State Historic Site. The large viewing window draws visitors into the Environmental Resource Center and invites them to learn.

Describe a highlight or most memorable moment related to your Legacy Project.

  • The successful installation of the pond and fountain, moving the resident koi to their new home was a highlight of the project. It was also great to see how quickly the birds found the new feeder locations and we can now enjoy seeing and hearing them all year.
