Log Cabin Day Festival planned at refuge

The Log Cabin Day Festival at Muscatatuck National Wildlife Refuge will be Saturday to wrap up National Wildlife Refuge Week.

The annual event, sponsored by the refuge nonprofit friends group Muscatatuck Wildlife Society, will be at Myers Cabin and runs from 10:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The event features a free ham and bean lunch (cooked the old-fashioned way), music, a blacksmith, old-time crafts, wildlife exhibits, children’s activities and more.

Scattertack Band will perform from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., and guests can peek inside the log cabin, which once housed the Myers family.

Other activities include spinning, butter churning, popcorn shelling, treadle machine sewing, weaving, quill writing, playing string games and using a wringer washing machine.

The refuge closed area next to the Myers Cabin also will be open to visitors until 2:30 p.m. and a shuttle will take people to view an eagle nest.

The refuge is at 12985 E. U.S. 50, Seymour.
