The objective of the Eagle Marsh Nature Preserve is twofold. First, it’s their mission to restore and protect wetlands in the Little River watershed southwest of Fort Wayne, Indiana. That’s an important project as it provides important habitat for many birds and animals, including species of special concern in Indiana that need large trees, sandy soil, or leaf litter to complete their life cycles

The other important objective is to provide educational opportunities that encourage individuals to be good stewards of wetlands and other natural ecosystems. 

For guests of the Best Western Luxbury Inn, it means that there are eight miles of trails allow hikers to access the preserve’s varied habitats of shallow-water wetland, sedge meadow, prairie, mature forest and young trees.

There are 200 kinds of birds and numerous other wild creatures have been seen at Eagle Marsh, among them 24 bird and two amphibian species endangered or of special concern in Indiana. Bald eagles are seen often at the preserve.
