Marsh Madness Saturday and Sunday to Feature Virtual Programming

The Indiana Division of Fish & Wildlife is partnering with Friends of Goose Pond to stage the 12th annual Marsh Madness Sandhill Crane Festival Saturday and Sunday.

Marsh Madness is a community-based bird-watching festival held in Linton, in Greene County.

The event celebrates the migration of sandhill cranes and waterfowl at Goose Pond Fish & Wildlife Area, which is located on the town’s outskirts.

For safety reasons, this year’s events will take place virtually.

Programming will include bird-watching tips from the property manager and assistant property manager, a birds of prey presentation, information from the International Crane Foundation, and Facebook Live sessions from bird-watching experts in the field.

On-site visitors to Goose Pond FWA may also take a self-guided driving tour of the property or stop in the Goose Pond FWA Visitor Center to get more information about the FWA’s attractions.
