DESCRIPTION

Wabashiki Fish and Wildlife Area is composed of 2600 acres of floodplain along the Wabash River. On August 15th 2010, Vigo County Parks Department and the Department of Natural Resources joined together in a cooperative effort to offer this bird viewing paradise to all of its patrons. Hunting, fishing, trapping, bird viewing, and many other outside activities are yours to be experienced.

Most revenues used in land acquisition, development, operation and maintenance of Wabashiki Fish and Wildlife Area are derived from the sale of hunting, fishing, and trapping licenses. Funds are also received from the federal Pittman-Robertson and Dingell-Johnson programs to aid fish and wildlife restoration. These funds are derived from taxes levied on sport hunting and fishing equipment. Indiana hunters and fishermen are proud to provide this property for the enjoyment of all people.
