Lake Tippecanoe Ecotour

The Lake Tippecanoe Property Owners Association and the Lilly Center invite you on an Ecotour Expedition of Lake Tippecanoe!

You can join the tour with your friends or family from the safety of your own boat. Dr. Nate Bosch will narrate the tour, and it will be broadcast on an FM radio station for your listening comfort. You will be encouraged to text your own questions to him during the tour as well!

Learn to see your lake in new ways as you explore the surface to the deepest depths and the largest to the smallest plants and animals living in the middle.

Tour participants will learn about and experience for themselves the lake food chain, temperature layers, inflowing streams, surrounding wetlands, weeds and algae. Be sure to pack your gear and join us for the expedition!

This event is generously sponsored by Zimmer Biomet and Kosciusko County Farm Bureau.

Meet at the Tippecanoe Lake Country Club. Remember, you will need to be in a boat (your own or a friend’s) to participate in the tour.
