The Log Cabin Day Festival at Muscatatuck National Wildlife Refuge is today, and kicks off National Wildlife Refuge Week.
The annual event, sponsored by the refuge non-profit friends group Muscatatuck Wildlife Society, is 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Myers Cabin. The event features a free ham and bean lunch, music, a blacksmith, old-time crafts, wildlife exhibits, children’s activities and more.
The refuge’s “closed area” next to Myers Cabin will be open to visitors during the event and a shuttle will take people to view an eagle’s nest.
A special part of Log Cabin Day this year will be monarch butterfly demonstrations, exhibits and children’s activities located outside the refuge visitor center.
