Beginning at 7 p.m. at both locations on both days, officers will be on site to cover material regarding the hiring process for Indiana Conservation Officers and answer questions from interested candidates. The address for Potato Creek State Park is 25601 IN-4 in North Liberty. Salamonie Interpretive Center is located at 3691 New Holland Road in Andrews.

District 1 includes St. Joseph, Elkhart, Marshall, Kosciusko, Fulton, Miami, and Wabash counties.

This event will cover critical portions of the 2021 Indiana Conservation Officer hiring process,  including duties of a conservation officer/hiring process, preparation for the written exam, preparation for core values training, and physical agility testing requirements.
