LINTON, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) – Friends of Goose Pond made a sizable donation to the Indiana Department of Natural Resources today for interpretive displays at Goose Pond Fish & Wildlife Area (FWA).
“Friends of Goose Pond is a long-time supporter of the property,” said Travis Stoelting, property manager. “Their donation toward interpretive displays will help visitors learn about the property and its management.
“The Division of Fish & Wildlife is very grateful for their contribution and for our continued partnership with Friends of Goose Pond.”
The DNR Division of Fish & Wildlife is currently working with a contractor for the development of educational exhibits at the Goose Pond FWA Visitor Center. The exhibits will highlight the property’s history, wildlife and management.
Friends of Goose Pond’s donation comes from a combination of funds generated by memberships, the community birding festival Marsh Madness, and the former Sullivan County Chapter of Quail Unlimited.
Friends of Goose Pond has provided funds and volunteers for Goose Pond FWA many times since the group’s establishment in 2007. The Friends’ most recent previous donation was for the purchase of outdoor binoculars, also for the Visitor Center.
