Entry Description
With Thanksgiving right around the corner, Monroe Lake is celebrating turkeys on Sunday, Nov. 24, at Paynetown State Recreation Area.

The focus isn’t on the domestic turkey, which most people serve for dinner, but the wild turkey.

The day begins with the “Turkey Trek” at 10:30 a.m. This hike will meet at the overflow parking area, which is on your right after passing the Paynetown entrance gatehouse. The naturalist will lead a search for signs of wild turkey activity and discuss the life of turkeys during winter.

Participants should dress for the weather, wear good hiking shoes and be prepared for off-trail hiking. The 75-minute hike is recommended for ages 8 and older.

Families with children ages 6 to 12 are invited to drop in between 1 and 4 p.m. for “Turkey Time” at Paynetown’s Activity Center, which is next to the beach. Four activity stations will each have a different turkey-themed craft and teach wild turkey facts. Kids also can touch a turkey skull, feathers and feet.

Both programs are free, and there is no fee to enter Paynetown during the off-season. Paynetown is at 4850 S. State Road 446, Bloomington.

For more information, call (812) 837-9967, or email naturalist Jill Vance at jvance@dnr.IN.gov.

Monroe Lake (stateparks.IN.gov/2954.htm) is at 4850 South State Road 446, Bloomington, 47401.
