    ‘Second Saturdays’ at Indiana’s Salamonie Lake

    Salamonie Lake will host free campground programs each second Saturday of June, July and August.

    The programs will be presented by naturalists from Upper Wabash Interpretive Services.

    “Creatures of the Wild” will be Saturday, June 8, at 7:30 p.m., at the campground shelter area. Participants can meet live animals and learn what makes them special. Participants are encouraged to bring cameras.

    Saturday, July 13, will be “Beach Field Day.”  Field day activities and games will begin at 1 p.m. A sandcastle sculpture contest will begin at 2 p.m., with judging an hour later. Participants can bring sand toys or containers to use during building. Prizes will be awarded for most creative, best nature theme, and best in show.

    Saturday, Aug. 10, will be “Kids Green Thumb Gardening Day.” Participants should meet at the Interpretive Center’s butterfly garden. Members of the Huntington Master Gardeners will teach kids and their accompanying adults about harvesting garden vegetables and about flowers. The time is yet to be determined.

    The standard entrance fee of $5 per in-state vehicle or $7 per out-of–state vehicle will apply for those who have not purchased an annual entrance pass.

    Camping reservations can be made at or (866) 622-6746.
