The Upper Wabash Interpretive Services staff provides program and activities at Mississinewa Lake, Salamonie Lake, Salamonie River State Forest and J. Edward Roush Fish & Wildlife Area.

The headquarters for the staff is the Salamonie Interpretive and Nature Center. Turn off of State Road 105 into the Lost Bridge West Recreation Area, pass the gatehouse and then take the next right.
