LINTON, Ind.— A popular southwestern Indiana birdwatching site will have a grand opening for its new visitor center this week.

The 7,000-square-foot office and visitor center at Goose Pond Fish & Wildlife Area near Linton will have a grand opening ceremony at 2 p.m. Thursday.

The visitor center also is featured in a new video from the DNR Division of Communications. Sandhill cranes, whooping cranes, and white pelicans are among the migrating birds featured at Goose Pond in the video. It can be viewed at https://youtu.be/eBHvu7vJEWA.
