Kokiwanee Nature Preserve, Near Lagro
Bald eagles often congregate in the area around the Salamonie Reservoir. We will look for them in the area downstream from the dam. We will also look for latewinter birds in the ACRES-owned Kokiwanee Preserve, and look at the waterfalls where streams enter the Salamonie Gorge. If time and interest permit we will take a look at a site near Lagro where eagles have nested in recent years.
To find the preserve, follow SR 524 south from the town of Lagro (between Wabash and Huntington, just off US 30). Cross the Wabash River and follow 524 as it bends to the left. When 524 bends right, continue straight on Hanging Rock Road. Follow it past Hanging Rock and around a right-angle bend. Continue straight onto CR 500 E and follow through a left-angle bend (becomes CR 50 S) until it reaches a T intersection with CR 600E. Turn right at the T and take the next right to the Tailwater Fishing area parking lot. For more information, please contact Dave Hicks at 260-982-2471 or djhicks (at) manchester.edu.
