Why You Should Visit
Though more like a glacial basin or shallow depression rather than a permanent pond, Pipewort Pond Nature Preserve in Elkhart County offers beautiful scenery in a serene atmosphere. The area is not only recognized as an important piece of Indiana's biological diversity puzzle but also affectionately honors the late William L. Lieber for his long-time commitment to the protection of our state's natural resources. Pipewort Pond was dedicated as a State Nature Preserve in 1986.
There are several species of endangered plants at Pipewort Pond that are being protected including umbrella sedge, long-beaked baldrush, small bulrush, and brown-fruited sedge.
