The Hoosier state is home to lots of different landscapes, environments, and creatures. Sometimes, though, it behooves us to give nature a boost, and that’s where places like Merry Lea Environmental Learning Center come in! There’s a lot to admire about this 1,189-acre nature sanctuary, but our favorite part of it is probably the wetlands.
We're aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate
If you’d like to visit Kesling Wetlands and Merry Lea Environmental Education Center, first visit their website here. You’ll find operating hours, open/closed notifications, more pictures, loads of information about the center and those who manage it, and information about the fully-sustainable farm on the premises, too.
