Refuge seeks input
on discovery area
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is asking for feedback on a proposed new public use at Muscatatuck National Wildlife Refuge.
The proposed use is the addition of a 0.147 acre Children’s Nature Discovery Area adjacent to the visitor center.
The Children’s Nature Discovery area would be a mowed opening where young children could explore boulders, tree slabs and downed trees, hollow logs and other natural objects.
It would be available to children with their parents (or other supervising adults) anytime the refuge is open.
A draft plan on the proposed activity, plus other information related to the proposal, is available for review at the refuge office and visitor center and at local libraries.
Public comments are being solicited on the proposed activity through Sept. 30. Comments may be submitted to Refuge Manager, Muscatatuck NWR, 12985 E. U.S. 50, Seymour, IN 47274 or Muscatatuck@fws.gov.
For information, call 522-4352.
