That is Lob-lolly (rhymes with Holly), as in Loblolly Marsh Wetland Preserve, part of the Limberlost State Historic Site in Geneva, Indiana. The marsh is being reclaimed and features thousands of Indiana’s natural wonders of flora and fauna, plants and wildlife, etc. I went for a visit recently and even through the mist of May it was a beautiful and peaceful place (click on photos for larger views).
Each month, on the first Saturday, the site features guided Wetland Tours, allowing visitors to gain valuable insight into wetland conservation and how it all affects wildlife and habitats. For more information click here.
Where: Meet the naturalist at 9:30 a.m. at the Limberlost Cabin in Geneva, Indiana. Parking lot is just off of U.S. 27, south of the caution light.
