Shawnee Bottoms Bodine Tract

This 255 acre property contains oak woodlands and restored upland praire planted in native grasses along with reforested bottomlands. A walk along the 2/3 mile, one-way walking trail covers some of the old Wabash and Erie Canal and leads to a 9 acre pond with a view of the nesting area of bald eagles.
