Collaborative Workshops and Story Map

The Indiana Silver Jackets is made up of multiple agencies and organizations focused on hazard mitigation, emergency management, floodplain management, natural resources management or conservation, etc.

The Indiana Silver Jackets was awarded funds from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to complete a wetland outreach and education project through Floodplain Management Services.  The project delivered an educational outreach program for Indiana communities focusing on the importance of wetlands and how they impact water quality and reduce flood risk.  There was a series of four workshops located throughout the state: northeast, northwest, southeast and southwest.  Each workshop included half day workshops with presentations on wetlands, functions and values of wetlands, regulations and what the public can do.  There was an additional field trip to a local wetland for each workshop.

Workshops were held at Muscatatuck National Wildlife Refuge on July 12, 2022, Prophetstown State Park and Purdue University on July 22, 2022, Eagle Marsh Nature Preserve and LC Nature Park on August 10, 2022 and Goose Pond Fish and Wildlife Area and Bloomfield Library on August 16, 2022.

To request additional wetland workshops the public may contact the Indiana Silver Jackets.
