DNR Plans Open House At Forest

Last updated on Tuesday, February 28, 2012

(UNDATED) - People interested in how Indiana’s state forests are run may share their views at a series of open houses starting next month.

Seven open houses between March and September will cover nine state forest and two state recreation areas.

At each event the DNR of Forestry will provide information about recreational activities, budget, staffing, major project, the current DNR Division of Forestry Strategic Plan, invasive species and forest resource management.

Attendees can talk to DNR personnel and some open houses will include a tour of facilities.

An open house for Jackson-Washington State Forest is set for May 17 from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. at Starve Hollow State Recreation Area's nature center at 5 p.m. attendees can join a woodland tour of a recent timber harvest area.
