about this mission:

Deam Lake is forest property designed for recreational activities. Under the multiple use concept, a variety of compatible activities are available. These include fishing, boating, swimming, camping, picnicking, hiking and hunting in designated areas. The 194-acre lake was constructed in 1965 and was named in honor of Charles Deam, Indiana's first state forester. Deam is best known for his book, Trees of Indiana, a comprehensive study of trees throughout the state. He was also instrumental in getting land set aside for what is now the Department of Natural Resources.


what to bring:

Volunteers should wear long pants, closed toe shoes, and work or leather gloves. 


Meet in the beach parking lot for details and assignments. 

Rain will cancel the project.

Carpooling is a good idea, and volunteers should identify themselves as such when coming through the Front Gate so that the attendant knows not to charge admission.
