Preserve Description

Lonidaw is a Native American name meaning “Spirit Queen of the Woods.” The wife of Potowatomi Chief Simon Pokagon bore the name. Perhaps her spirit is still among the beech and maple trees on the high ground, or the sugar maple, red elm, walnut and hackberry standing on the lower ground. Maybe her spirit is among the wildflowers: wild columbine and celandine poppy on the higher ground, or the skunk cabbage and marsh marigold in the low wetland around the shore of Little Whitford, a five-acre kettle lake, or with the birds and other wildlife that are seen in this preserve.
