Some of the prettiest treasures are tucked right under our noses, or near major highways, anyway. When traveling between Kentucky and Indiana, close to the Ohio state line, an unexpected refuge for man and beast, bird and fish waits for us.
The Oxbow is home to countless land and waterfowl, amphibians, mammals and more. Wildlife is protected here, making this haven just off US 50 near Greendale, Indiana, a perfect setting for plein air painters, binocular clad birders, and contemplative walkers.
This special place is open to the public free of charge and offers an unexpected, little-known escape from the usual routine.
As with any lovely spot, when you visit, please be respectful of the earth by removing any evidence of your visit, and please consider joining the Friends of the Oxbow as a way to ensure future visitors an undisturbed sanctuary of their very own, too.
