Swamp Angel :o)

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.

For more details, go to Nutwood Junction.


  1. Cool slideshow! It was a great chance to see a place that not everyone gets to see. I'm so glad we went!

  2. Hi Ken,

  6. The Nature Conservancy is such a great group Ken!

  7. Great slideshow. It sounds like a great outing and very interesting too.

  8. Enjoyed the slideshow! I happened upon your (and Beth's) blog(s) when working on my own post on the trip to Swamp Angel. I am putting a link to your post within mine. If you're interested in seeing it, it will be posted at I probably won't finish it for a day or so.

Tell Me What You Think, Don't Make me go Rogue on you :o)
