More land to possibly be added to Wabashiki Fish and Wildlife area

Under the Healthy Rivers INitiative, the Department of Natural Resources and its partners are working with willing landowners to permanently protect 43,000 acres in the floodplain of the Wabash River and Sugar Creek in west-central Indiana and another 26,000 acres of the Muscatatuck River bottoms in southeast Indiana.

Wabashiki Fish and Wildlife Area already encompasses 2,400 acres along the west bank of the Wabash River between Terre Haute and West Terre Haute. At this time it is not sure if the new area will be public hunting or controlled by land owners. READ MORE
