History of Acquisition and Property
The first property ever acquired by NICHES, the island in the Wabash River were a gift from the Dix Weaver family in 1996.
The property is named in the family’s honor.
At the time of NICHES acquisition, the north end of the island was home to a large great blue heron rookery with over 100 nests, and the south end of the island was home to an active bald eagle nest. The eagle nest was lost when a tornado swept through the area in early 2010s.
