Why You Should Visit
Beanblossom Bottoms in Monroe County is owned and managed by Sycamore Land Trust and U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service. This unique hardwood wetland is home to at least fifteen different endangered or threatened plant and animal species. Bird watching is also a popular activity at the Bottoms.
Conservation Efforts that have been Done
The Sycamore Land Trust and its volunteers built a two-mile interpretive trail and boardwalk for visitors to explore the wetland more easily, especially when rains can make the preserves inaccessible during wet seasons.
Work done at this preserve is in partnership with the Indiana Heritage Trust.
