We are looking forward to showcasing the connection between soil health and water quality at our Field and Stream Day set for September 6th beginning at 9 am.

The day will begin at 9 am at the Reynolds Creek Game Bird Habitat located at 1303 N. 600 E. in Pine Township. From there we will travel to a corn field seeded to cover crops in mid-August. Following the field tour we will stop at the Heron Rookery, where we will learn more about the fish found in the East Branch of the Little Calumet River, which runs through the rookery. We will finish with lunch at the Game Bird Habitat.

This field day builds on the nutrient study we have been conducting in this area for 18 months.

Although this event is free, we ask that reservations be made to the Soil & Water office by E-mail at or by phone at 219-462-7515 ext. 3 no later than August 28th.
