Thousands Head to Goose Pond for Marsh Madness

The 5th annual Marsh Madness continued in Linton. Bird watchers gathered to Humphreys Park for events, class and some arts and crafts. Visitors could also watch a large migration of sandhill cranes, as some 7,000 to 10,000 cranes were in the area. The Linton marsh is one of the largest in the country, and supporters says it's a Wabash Valley treasure.
Many took advantage of Saturday's sunshine to get outside and celebrate nature.

The 5th annual Marsh Madness continued in Linton.

Bird watchers gathered to Humphreys Park for events, class and some arts and crafts.

Visitors could also watch a large migration of sandhill cranes, as some 7,000 to 10,000 cranes were in the area.

The Linton marsh is one of the largest in the country, and supporters says it's a Wabash Valley treasure.

"A lot of times people think you have to go the National Geographic or Animal Planet to see a spectacle of nature, and that's not true. All you have to do is come to goose pond during the crane migration and you'll see a natural wonder the likes of which you've probably never seen,"
said Barbara Simpson and George Sly, members of the Friends of Goose Pond.

All of the money raised will go toward building a new visitor's center for the Goose Pond marsh area.

The Friends of Goose Pond has donated $26,000 toward that cause.
