(LINTON) – Thanks to a partnership between the Duke Energy Foundation and the Indiana Natural Resources Foundation, guests of Greene County’s Goose Pond Fish & Wildlife Area can expect to see new interpretive displays at the property’s visitor center by spring of 2020.
The Duke Energy Foundation recently awarded a $20,000 grant to create exhibits to educate visitors about Goose Pond’s wetland, grassland, and agricultural habitats.
More than 260 bird species, including federally endangered whooping cranes, have been documented at Goose Pond, attracting birders from across the country. The site draws about 12,000 wildlife watchers each year.
Angie Haywood, director of education and outreach for the Indiana Division of Fish & Wildlife, says the exhibits will improve guest experiences.
