SYRACUSE, Ind. - A northeastern Indiana conservancy group has purchased more than 44 acres of lakefront property and wetlands that will be protected for future generations.
The Wawasee Area Conservancy Foundation bought the 44 and 1/2 acres along the southeast corner of Syracuse Lake about 30 miles southeast of South Bend
The Journal Gazette reports the property includes the Bonar Lake wetlands, Syracuse Lake wetlands and about 950 feet of shoreline.
The donor-supported conservation group says the acquisition boosts to nearly 820 acres and more than 12 miles of shoreline the amount of watershed the conservancy has protected.
The group's mission is to preserve and protect the Lake Wawasee area watershed for present and future generations. That watershed includes Syracuse, Wawasee, Bonar and Papakeechie lakes as well as 10 other lakes.
