Friends of Goose Pond (FoGP) was established to support the goals of wildlife conservation and habitat restoration at Goose Pond Fish and Wildlife Area through environmental education, scientific research and recreational activities and programs.
We encourage you to browse our site, learn of our activities, and plan a visit to the area. We are pleased at the success the wetland restoration has achieved in such a short time and are encouraged at the abundance of bird and wildlife species that are using the area. Our activities include Marsh Madness scheduled for early spring in conjunction with the annual Sandhill Crane migration, Community Birding Days, Wildflower Walks, Dove Hunts, School Field Trips, Clean-up Days, a photo contest, hat sales and the annual Goose Pond Calendar.
Welcome to Friends of Goose Pond web site. We look forward to sharing our site and our treasure with you!
5th Annual Greene County Indiana
Marsh Madness Festival
February 28th – March 1st, 2014
The Greene County Marsh Madness Festival will be a destination for visitors from across the Midwest, celebrating the county's richly abundant and inherently beautiful natural areas, the centerpiece of which will be the spring migration of waterfowl and cranes to Goose Pond Fish and Wildlife Area. Interpretive programs, educational material and artistic displays will inspire festival goers while instilling in them a strong conservation ethic.
Marsh Madness is brought to you by the Friends of Goose Pond in co-operation with the Carnegie Heritage and Art Center, The City of Linton, Sassafras Audubon Society, Greene County Daily World, Linton First United Methodist Church and the Indiana Department of Natural Resource – Division of Fish and Wildlife.
