INDOT has advised of a road closure on SR 8 about 1 mile east of Albion that may well affect your commute to Black Pine. INDOT's posted detour will drive traffic several miles north and for an extreme distance - adding time and cost. Please review our recommendations below for a local detour option for typical passenger vehicles. (For an alternate route for buses or other large trucks, please click here.)
This road closure is expected to be in effect for up to three months, until early to mid June, 2015. If you are traveling from Fort Wayne you may also avoid the closure by traveling via SR 3 north to Baseline Road, then west to SR 9 North to Albion; or by US Highway 33 N to SR 9 N to Albion. Our Google map may help you choose your best route.
Meet Black Pine Animals Show
The "Meet Black Pine Animals Show," sponsored and produced by Scher Maihem Studios, takes you behind the scenes to see some of the 100 animals at Black Pine Animal Sanctuary.

Lori Gagen, Executive Director, and the dedicated sanctuary staff will take you around the compound to tell you all about the exotic critters and their inspiring stories. Many of these animals are survivors of the exotic animal trade and are now able to live in peace at the caring facility Black Pine has to offer.
Open your hearts to the majestic animals that make Black Pine such a wonderful place to see.
