Indiana State Wildlife Action Plan

The Indiana Division of Fish & Wildlife is beginning the process of updating the State Wildlife Action Plan. Indiana’s Action Plan is a habitat-based model that incorporates all fish and wildlife species within the state. It identifies the condition of Indiana’s wildlife species and habitats, the problems they face, and the actions needed to ensure their long-term success.

Your Involvement
Partner input is crucial to this process. You’ve been identified as a key partner to this collaborative planning effort. We would like to take this opportunity to invite you to attend one of three stakeholder meetings. We need your success stories and your assistance in shaping the future and establishing outcomes that we all believe are vital to the natural resource community at large.

Meeting Dates
Three meeting dates have been scheduled, each in a distinct geographical region for ease of attendance:

Central Indiana    Thursday, September 26
Southern Indiana  Wednesday, October 2
Northern Indiana  Thursday, October 3

The exact time and location for the meeting will be updated shortly; however, if you know what meeting date and region suit you the best, please do not hesitate to RSVP today!

*For those unable to attend any of the in-person meetings, an alternative input forum will be available at a later time. To receive maximum benefit, we strongly encourage in-person participation.

Please visit HERE to register your attendance at one of the three meetings (or the alternative input forum). Additional information about the meetings is also available on the website at
