CHANGE IN LOCATION! We hope you can join us at tomorrow’s Next Generation Day sponsored by Exhibit Columbus and Council for Youth Development. Slight shift in plans – everything will kick off at the LIBRARY instead of Central Middle School. One of the exhibits at Central is not feeling well and needed to be sent off for repair. So start the party at the LIBRARY on Saturday at 1pm and runs until 3pm! Remember it’s FREE and there are snacks and prizes! We look forward to seeing you!

Columbus, Ind., hometown of Cummins and Mike Pence, embodies a new kind of immigrant melting pot far from the big city; “a snowball effect.”

UPDATE 9/1/21: Residents in these counties should refrain from feeding birds: Allen, Hamilton, Hendricks, Johnson, Lake, Marion, Monroe, Porter, St. Joseph. More: on.IN.gov/songbirddeaths.
----------------------------
UPDATE 8/18/21: Residents in these counties should continue refraining from feeding birds: Allen, Carroll, Hamilton, Hancock, Hendricks, Johnson, Lake, Marion, Monroe, Porter, St. Joseph, Tippecanoe, Whitley. More: on.IN.gov/songbirddeaths.
----------------------------
UPDATE 8/9/21: The Indiana Department of Natural Resources announced today that Hoosiers in 76 counties across the state can resume feeding birds but asks that residents of the remaining counties keep their feeders down while the investigation into what is killing songbirds continues.
DNR recommended a statewide moratorium on bird feeding on June 25 to slow the spread of a still-undetermined illness that is killing birds across the state. Hoosiers answered the call, removing feeders, cleaning birdbaths, and submitting more than 3,400 reports of sick or dead birds. DNR biologists believe there to be more than 500 cases in 72 counties that involve a very specific set of clinical signs (crusty eyes, eye discharge, and/or neurological issues).
Based on the data, it appears that the bird illness is consistently affecting specific areas. There is no imminent threat to people, the population of specific bird species, or to the overall population of birds in Indiana.
DNR recommends that residents of the following counties continue to refrain from feeding birds: Allen, Carroll, Clark, Floyd, Hamilton, Hancock, Hendricks, Johnson, Lake, Marion, Monroe, Morgan, Porter, St. Joseph, Tippecanoe, Whitley.
Residents of other counties may again put out their feeders. Seed and suet feeders should be cleaned at least once every two weeks by scrubbing feeders with soap and water, followed by a short soak in a 10% bleach solution. Feeders should be thoroughly rinsed and dried before being filled with birdseed. Hummingbird feeders should be cleaned at least one a week with a 10% bleach solution and rinsed thoroughly.
The USGS National Wildlife Health Center’s avian disease experts are working to determine the cause of this disease outbreak. Indiana will continue to support the effort by providing samples to the laboratory.
Reports help DNR staff continue to track this outbreak. If you see a sick or dead bird with the above symptoms, report it at on.IN.gov/sickwildlife. More: bit.ly/3quYOqq.

He was seen wearing shorts and a dirt bike style helmet. The suspect was last seen leaving the park’s north entrance on a black moped.
