Welcome New Fund

Do you have a passion or a favorite place?

Fred Wooley (far right), a retired Indiana State Park interpreter, has a passion for nature especially in our Indiana State Parks. Fred has created the Chain O’ Lakes State Park Interpretive Services Fund at the Community Foundation of Noble County.

The Chain O’ Lakes State Park Interpretive Services Fund (Link to Fund) supports the park’s interpretive services including programs and facilities at the Nature Center, the historic Stanley One-room Schoolhouse, and throughout the property.

The fund is dedicated in memory of Jacquelyn Wooley who had a great love for both natural/cultural history, and teaching others, particularly children, about the world around them. She was a partner and great supporter of her husband Fred Wooley, an Indiana State Park interpreter who dedicated his career and life to the resources of Indiana State Parks and to the mission of the parks’ interpretive services.
