Log Cabin Day at Muscatatuck today

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.
