Loon Lisle Nature Reserve
November 18, 2016 was a historic day for The Loon Lake Property Owners Association (LLPOA). On that day the LLPOA took possession of 7.3 acres of wooded and wetland property to be preserved in its natural state for generations to come. The purchase of this land from the previous owners, Steve and Cassie Lisle was made possible in large part due to a $75,000 grant received from the Indiana Bicentennial Nature Trust. These funds were matched by the LLPOA enabling the purchase.
The property is located off County Road 600W in Noble County, directly adjacent to Loon Lake. It consists of 7.3 acres, most of which is wetlands. It also encompasses just over 600 feet of undeveloped shoreline on Loon Lake. The parcel is home to numerous species of wildlife, native birds and migrating water fowl. In addition, there have been numerous sightings of bald eagle nesting on the property.
Taking possession of this land was the culmination of a long process which started in 2014. The purchase was the result of the vision of some forward-looking Loon Lake property owners coupled with the Lisle’s desire to see the property remain undeveloped. The ground is one of the last remaining undeveloped parcels of land on Loon Lake and everyone involved in the project was deeply committed to seeing it preserved. Future use of the land will now be governed by a Department of Natural Resources (DNR) easement that requires strict adherence to a carefully drafted set of rules and guidelines that both limit development and insure the grounds will be preserved for the benefit of future generations.
