Preserve Description

Kokiwanee features bluffs along the Salamonie River as well as streams tumbling down waterfalls into the river.

The Kokomo Kiwanis helped purchased what was then primary farmland for the Girl Scouts in 1945, hence the name Kokiwanee. The Girl Scouts operated a camp on the property from 1945 to 1996, turning the former farmland back over to nature.

Today this preserve is a treasure trove of ecological diversity with many species of trees; wildflowers, including snow trillium; and birds, from wood ducks and bald eagles on the river to great blue herons wading in the shallow water.
