  1. Muscatatuck refuge needs volunteers

    Associated Press

    SEYMOUR--Federal staffing cutbacks are forcing the Muscatatuck National Wildlife Refuge to turn to volunteers to help keep the 7,800-acre southern Indiana refuge running. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service recently announced plans to cut staff in its Midwest region, of which the Muscatatuck refuge is a part, by about 20 percent. Under those cutbacks, 71 staff members will be lost across the Midwest, with Indiana losing six positions at all of its federal parks and refuges. ''We're sort of trying to hold on right now,'' said Marc Webber, who manages the refuge about 40 miles southeast of Bloomington that has wetlands used by numerous migratory bird species.,Refuge.article
