Cattail Awards

Award Winner – Nancy Nelson

At the recent Lake Celebration and WACF Annual Meeting, two Cattail Awards were presented for outstanding environmental service in our watershed. This year the awards were presented to Nancy Nelson and Scott Fetters.


Anderson Farm Tour

We welcomed a special guest at the recent Ag Tour of Anderson Farms. Andrea Keller, the executive director of the Syracuse/Wawasee Chamber of Commerce brought State Representative Curt Nisly. Pictured is WACF executive director Heather Harwood discussing the importance of farming practices to the watershed with Representative Nisly.


Johnson Bay East Preserve

WACF’s newest acquisition (January 2018) is Johnson Bay East Preserve which neighbors the Johnson Bay wetlands and the B&O Railroad to the north and Johnson Bay wetlands to the west. This special 41 acre preserve once provided the outflow of Dillon Creek into the Johnson Bay/Wawasee wetlands and headwaters.
