Potato Creek Aquatic Areas Closed Nov. 9/10 and Dec.14/15 : The Director of the Department of Natural Resources has found that the density of the Canada goose populations at Potato Creek State Park has risen to a level that poses threats to the ecology of aquatic and terrestrial communities present, and the personal safety of park patrons. Current conditions requiring this emergency rule include eroded shorelines, increased sedimentation, and large amounts of goose waste in areas of high visitation and recreation. He has ordered limited Canada goose hunts to reduce the density of Canada geese that will take place on November 9/ 10, 2013 and December 14/15, 2013. During these hunts Worster Lake and certain wetland areas at Potato Creek State Park will be CLOSED to other park users. A map of the closed areas is available upon request. Other areas of the Park will remain OPEN for normal use during these hunt periods. If you choose to use the other Park facilities during this period, please use caution if passing near these aquatic areas. If you have questions about these hunts, please contact the Potato Creek at 574-656-8186.
BLUE-GREEN ALGAE INFO: Blue-green algae (BGA) is found in our lakes year round. When conditions are right, cells can reproduce in large numbers, and can result in a harmful algal bloom (HAB). We test many of our beaches where people use the water in the summer, but HABs may occur in other seasons too. Watch for algae accumulation, avoid drinking or cooking with lake water, and do not allow children or pets to swim where algae accumulation is present. For more information, visit www.algae.IN.gov or read our FAQ sheet here.
