GIBSON LAKE WILDLIFE HABITAT

Named an Important Bird Area by the National Audubon Society in 2005, the entire Gibson property consists of about 6,000 acres of reservoir, ponds, and wetlands. Gibson Lake itself is a 3,000-acre cooling reservoir with a surrounding levee and a 2-mile-long breakwater down the center. Because the warm water discharge keeps the lake from freezing in the winter, it often accumulates thousands of ducks and geese when the local lakes freeze. Located near the Wabash River on IN S.R. 64 west of Princeton, the habitat features a 160-acre wetland wildlife viewing area, a photographic blind, and two hiking trails near the Duke Energy main entrance.

NEW GENERATION DAIRY FARM


 

The New Generation Dairy Farm is owned and operated by Brian & Ranell Rexing. The operation covers 80 acres and milks over 900 head of Holstein cattle, three times a day. The operation’s average milk production is approximately 50,000 gallons per week. The facility contains an indoor observation room where visitors can get a birdseye view of the milking process. Tour the dairy facilities and discover how milk gets from the farm to your table.  School children, community groups, day camps and families are all invited to come out for a visit and leave with a “dairy good” treat. It’s a moo-ving experience!
