Hoosiers call for Salamonie River & Frances Slocum State Forests to be changed to State Parks!
In April, more than 890 Hoosiers submitted a petition to convert Salamonie and Frances Slocum State Forests into state parks.
Unfortunately, the DNR has recommended that the petition be rejected, in part so that logging can begin.
That said, the Indiana Natural Resources Commission (INRC) needs to hear from you. PLEASE SHOW UP TUESDAY and let them know you support the petition to allow these forests to be managed as State Parks.
This may be our last chance to protect these forests from proposed logging!
When: July 16, from 10 am to 12 pm
(Arrive early to get a seat!)
Where: Fort Harrison State Park, Garrison
6002 N. Post Rd.; Indianapolis
Review the Commission’s meeting agenda.
Read the Department’s report that will be considered by the Commission.
Read the petition cover letter and case statement to understand why these state parks should be created.
