Wintering at state parks and reservoirs
Have the winter blahs? Bah humbug. Winter is a great time to enjoy Indiana State Parks and Reservoirs
. Ski, sled, toboggan, hike ... the possibilities are nearly endless. Here are just a few things you can do to make January the start of a happy new year.
Get out your eagle eyes
- Patoka Lake offers two chances to see eagles on Jan. 7, one from 8 -11 a.m., the other from noon-3 p.m.
- Brown County offers a bald eagle program on Jan. 28. Participants will carpool to Monroe Lake from the Brown County nature center. A bald eagle program will follow at Brown County’s Abe Martin Lodge.
- Turkey Run will offer its Eagles in Flight Weekend, Jan. 27-29, with live bird programs, trips to roosts and visits to active eagle nests.
Indiana Tree Project
You can donate a hardwood tree to one of Indiana’s forests for $10 each through the Indiana Tree Project. The program is a joint effort between the Indiana Natural Resources Foundation, the DNR Division of Forestry, and the citizens and businesses of Indiana. Donors can track the progress of their tree(s) on the Indiana Tree Project website. The primary objectives of the Indiana Tree Project are to: Reforest Indiana by planting new hardwood seedlings throughout the state; restore lands that have been deforested; and renew hardwoods through sustainable forestry practices.
