Subject: [CPEO-MEF] MUNITIONS, WILDLIFE: Construction Support at the Jefferson Proving Ground (IN)
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service operates the Big Oaks National Wildlife Refuge (BONWR) on 50,000 acres at the former Jefferson Proving Ground in southern Indiana. In many ways, the Refuge is like any other expanse of preserved habitat, but access is limited because the property contains millions of rounds of unexploded ordnance. The Refuge wants the Army to clear land so it can build a visitor center and replace a bridge, but the Army refuses to use BRAC (Base Realignment and Closure) funds to conduct any form of area clearance. Congressman Baron Hill is seeking funds to conduct munitions response and building the proposed visitors' center.
