Why You Should Visit
Dedicated as a State Nature Preserve in 1990, Fawn River Fen Preserve in LaGrange County protects critical local watersheds and uplands. Fawn River, one of Indiana’s clearest rivers, flows through the preserve providing its native plants and animals with a protected, well-maintained stream-side habitat. The river, flanked by an extensive cattail marsh and a grass/sedge fen, also supports a healthy population of aquatic life.
Fawn River Fen is owned and managed by The Nature Conservancy, and work done at the preserve is in partnership with Department of Nature Preserves, Garden Clubs of America and Natural Resources Conservation Services.
