Salamonie River and Frances Slocum State Forests

On April 25, citizens from northern Indiana traveled to Indianapolis to deliver 871 signatures to the Indiana Natural Resources Commission (INRC) and Governor Holcomb’s office requesting that Salamonie River and Frances Slocum State Forests become
State Parks. In doing so, citizens are seeking to protect these forests from planned logging. Citizens have requested a hearing to allow testimony from those submitting the petition, other interested citizens, and experts. Citizens are also asking that any upcoming timber sales be put on hold while INRC officials consider the petition.
