Indiana DNR
The Conrad Station Nature Preserve in Newton County has become the 252nd site to receive nature preserve status. The Natural Resources Commission approved the 342 acre property today, which was purchased in 1998 with assistance from the Indiana Heritage trust program. The site is owned by the Nature Conservancy and consists primarily of black oak savannah, sand prairie, and a high-quality prairie restoration. It also connects with a large area that includes the Nature Conservancy's 72-hundred acre Kankakee Sands, Beaver Lake Nature Preserve and Willow Slough Fish and Wildlife Area.
