Work Day Description: Participants will join CEES and Indiana State University (ISU) staff to remove invasive exotic honeysuckle in the high quality woodland. Participants must wear clothes appropriate for outdoor field work. Long pants and closed toe shoes are required. A light snack, water, gloves, and equipment will be provided.
Sodalis Nature Park, is 210 acres of beautiful, mature woodlands and reforestation area, which serves as home to an abundant array of native Indiana wildlife. The park exists within a permanently protected conservation area established to protect the endangered Indiana bat (Myotis sodalis). This park was made possible due to a collaborative agreement between Hendricks County Parks and Recreation, the Indianapolis Airport Authority and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. Situating a park in the midst of a habitat of an endangered species is a unique opportunity and has been made possible through the tremendous community spirit of each agency involved.
Sodalis Nature Park has 3.5 miles of nature trails, picnic areas, nature programs, a 5.5 acre fishing pond, wildlife viewng platform and available pavilion rentals. This project is in partnership with the Indiana State University Center for Bat Research, Outreach and Conservation.
