Goose Pond Fish and Wildlife Area to build a new ADA accessible trail by Spring 2022

A new ownership rule will go into effect later this summer. All fish and wildlife sanctuary visitors are required to register and obtain a one-day permit card before entering the field, regardless of the activity. In order to meet this new requirement, DNR is asking visitors to register from Thursday. The one-day access permit must be kept ready and filled out during the visit to the respective FWA and returned to a self-service stand, a Dropbox or the office before departure.

DNR values ​​customers’ patience in taking the extra time to complete the permit. Feedback from these cards will help staff identify ways to improve Indiana FWAs for all users.
