DNR: Practice responsible recreationMay 22, 2020
From Local Sources
Indiana’s Department of Natural Resources is asking Hoosiers to help keep managed fish and wildlife areas clean and safe this holiday weekend by practicing responsible recreation.
Responsible recreation means that everyone does their part to keep FWAs healthy, beautiful and safe for Hoosiers and Indiana’s fish and wildlife, according to the DNR. While at FWAs this weekend, remember to bring a bag to carry out your trash. Enjoy the outdoors safely by practicing social distancing, parking only in designated areas, driving 30 mph or less on property roads and only using designated shooting ranges for target or recreational shooting.
Planning ahead is another way to ensure that you have a fun and safe time while enjoying the outdoors, according to the DNR. Along with any activity-specific gear and a trash bag, remember to bring water, hand sanitizer, soap and paper towels with you. Know where you’re going and think about an alternative location if your initial destination is crowded.
The DNR says FWAs provide excellent opportunities for fishing and shooting sports this time of year. You can also spend your visit wildlife watching, walking and enjoying the scenic views. If you’re interested in fishing, boating or paddling activities, find the perfect place near you using the interactive Where to Fish map here.
