Enoco Coal Mine Site

Listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2010. The property, formerly the Enoco Coal Mine, is a 160-acre reclaimed mine site near Bruceville, Indiana. The Department of Natural Resources completed a project to protect the ecosystem by building a wetland in 2009.

Fox Ridge Nature Park

Part of the former Fox Ridge Golf Course, this 95-acre property was converted to public use as a nature park in early 2015. The purchase was paid for in part by Indiana’s Bicentennial Nature Trust Grant Project. Development efforts are ongoing as a part of a Federal Land and Water Conservation Fund grant. The focus of Fox Ridge Nature Park is to provide the public a space for passive recreation, which means walking, hiking, bicycling, fishing, and exploring the natural world inhabiting the park. A shelter house is also available.
