Local News

TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) – New changes to the Wabashiki wildlife area create new experiences, animals and visitors.

New life includes changes to their “funky” property which is home to 72 hundred acres of land. The property is located two miles south of Interstate 70 in the Wabashika area.

“We’re excited to be adding a lot more property here and we’re going to see what we can do with that, with the manpower we have,” explained Wabashiki fish and wildlife property manager Scott McCormick. “We do have Wabashiki open house tomorrow, Saturday the 10th, between 10 and 2. We’ll be having something here at the Darwin road location.”

The organization has also planted several large sunflower fields as well as numerous food plots for wildlife. The hope is that the area can stay clean for wildlife and visitors.

“We’ve had Duke Energy come out and remove tons of ash piles that were left here previously,” stated McCormick. “They’ve been helping improve the roads and have some great partnerships here.”
