Viewing Wildlife

viewing wildlife from a blindThere are many animals who call the National Forest home. If you walk softly you are likely to encounter many of these creatures in the Forest. Bring your binoculars. If you have an interest in bugs or amphibians the Hoosier offices sell insect boxes and lens which allow children to closely examine these interesting life forms. Be sure to not harm these creatures and leave nothing but footsteps with your visit and take home only memories. We do have several watchable wildlife sites which are specifically designated because of the likelihood of seeing wildlife at these locations.
