The Nature Conservancy's Guide to Indiana Preserves (Paperback)

Unavailable. No reason given.


Upon first entering the preserve you sense that you are in a special place. There is an air of distinctness that is at first perhaps only subconsciously registered-distinct light through the trees, distinct smells of the conifers and oaks, distinct sounds of the wind moving through the canyon and leaves. A massive wall of sandstone looms up before you, and unusual plants of strange form flourish in the damp cool beneath a natural bridge carved into the rock.... -From the Portland Arch entry, written by Thomas O. Swinford

From the majestic dunes of northwest Indiana to the lush cypress sloughs at the convergence of the Ohio and Wabash Rivers-and all places in between-Indiana boasts a remarkable variety of natural areas.
