DNR ACQUISITIONS: Crooked Lake preserve adds land

February 7, 2013

COLUMBIA CITY — Crooked Lake’s nature preserve has recently added two additional tracts of land.

Indiana’s Department of Natural Resources (DNR) Commission voted Jan. 15 to bring in the 69.5 acres, named the Crooked Lake Addition Nature Preserve, to the original Crooked Lake Nature Preserve. The area now has a total of 215 acres.

The two parcels of land were added with assistance from the Indiana Heritage Trust and the Crooked Lake Property Owners’ Association.

Crooked Lake is one of a few in Indiana that is home to the Cisco fish. That is a species of special concern, according to the DNR. The tract will also be studied for runoff and was deemed important to acquire.
