Meno-aki State Nature Preserve

A number of natural communities are found in Meno-aki: namely hill prairie, dry-mesic and mesic (moist) upland forest, and floodplain forest. Prairie vegetation is scattered along the south-facing bluffs overlooking Cedar Creek. These hill prairies are not common anywhere in Indiana and are particularly rare this far east. Prairie plants give way to oak-hickory forest farther back from the steep creek bluffs. A number of steep wooded ravines cut through the bluff down to the floodplain. The name Meno-aki means good or blessed land in the Potawatomi language of Chief Metea for whom the park as a whole is named.
