Spring Slough

Spring Slough

This 104-acre property was acquired in Phase IV and is now part of the Indiana DNR Kankakee State Fish & Wildlife Area in Laporte County. Restoration of this site was completed in 2010 with the help of the Natural Resource Conservation Service, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, and Indiana Division of Fish and Wildlife.  Two shallow water areas totaling 8-acres were constructed on the site and the remaining area was planted to native prairie and sedge meadow.  This site is used heavily by migrating waterfowl on their way north in the early spring.
