Event: Annual Field Day

  The Chapter 182 annual Field Day was held at Chapter President, Ron Long's property at 3207 S 200 E on Saturday, September 12th.  There were about 2 dozen people in attendance and the day started with coffee and rolls.  Presentations were given by Tim Bomba of NCRS,  Scott Fetters of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife service, and Rob Chapman representing Purdue University.  The presentations were informative and very interactive with a number of questions from the attendees.  Following this, there was an hour and a half walking tour of Ron's property to view the many habitat projects, including wetlands, food plots, thousands of trees and shrubs which had been planted, cover crops, etc..  There was a lot of addtional discussion during the tour and it was quite enjoyable to see what Ron has developed for wildlife habitat.  After the tour, Ron treated everyone to a delicious lunch of pulled pork, fresh sweetcorn and various side dishes.  It turned out to be a beautiful day and a very successful Field Day.  Thanks to all who attended and a special thanks to Tim, Scott, and Rob for their effective presentations.  See photos of the property in the Photos section under the 2015 Field Day Gallery.
