Stillwater-Northfork Check Station on Kent Road, between Bloomington and Nashville

Registration REQUIRED by January 31; limited to 20 people. To register, email Jill Vance at jvance@dnr.IN.gov with your name, phone number, and the number of people in your group (or call the Paynetown Activity Center at 812-837-9967).

The Stillwater-North Fork Waterfowl Resting Area is Monroe Lake’s key wildlife management area. From mid-Autumn through early Spring, a seasonal wetland provides important habitat for migrating and resident waterfowl. The marsh is only part of the story, though. On this hike, we’ll follow the levee wall around Stillwater Marsh and discuss how Monroe Lake manages the area to support a wide variety of wildlife. If luck favors us, we may also see ducks, geese, eagles, and other wildlife (if you have binoculars, please bring them!). 90 minutes

Waterfowl Resting Areas at Monroe Lake are generally closed to the public from October 1 through April 15, so this hike offers a unique opportunity to view the habitat during the winter season. It will be an easy hike over flat terrain, with a total distance of around 1.75 miles.

Cost: Free
