(La Porte County, IN) - There could be another county park in La Porte County.
Sebert Woods is just east of Interstate 94, about two miles from the Michigan state line. Over 300 plant species have been identified in the 40 acres near the Lake Michigan Dunes.
The land was donated to the La Porte County Park Foundation and several months ago was declared a nature preserve by the state.
La Porte County Parks Superintendent Jeremy Sobecki said the plan would make Sebert Woods the fifth county park in La Porte County. He said there would be nothing more than a parking lot and dirt trail developed given its nature preserve designation. There’s also swampland on the property.
For the land to become a county park, Sobecki said a favorable vote is needed from the La Porte County Commissioners. A request could come before the commissioners at some point in the coming months.
