A great day, we headed to a Nature Conservancy site here in Northern Indiana, for a two hour hike. I have been a contributor for 25 years, but this is my first hike with a land steward. I believe that the Nature Conservancy's mix of sustainability and public access is just right. They are known for balancing economic and environmental protection perspectives.
In this slide show you get to see the entrance and oak grove, two Beths, the fen, two carnivorous pitcher plants, and an island oasis in the middle of the fen. It consumed most of the afternoon, but well worth the time.
