About Limberlost and Gene Stratton-Porter
Famous naturalist and author Gene Stratton-Porter cherished the flora and fauna of Limberlost Swamp, and she understood the importance of this type of habitat. Sadly not everyone was as well-informed, and the swamp was eventually drained in an attempt to farm the land. The Friends of the Limberlost State Historic Site, through a tremendous amount of hard work and dedication, have recently restored the land, and much of the wildlife about which Gene Stratton-Porter lovingly wrote has returned. To fully appreciate the history and importance of Limberlost and Gene Stratton-Porter, be certain to take a tour of this historically significant site to accompany any program you attend. The depth of understanding such a tour provides will leave you with a sense of wonder and awe!
