Potawatomi Wildlife Park is owned and managed by Potawatomi Park, Inc., a not-for-profit private foundation. This Private foundation is an outgrowth of the proceeds from the estate of Vernon Romine. Potawatomi Wildlife Park preserves both a prehistorical and historical site of significance to the regions past. The Park preserves both prehistorical and historical indian encampments, the Stephen Bennack Potawatomi village, a portion of the Goshen-Logansport trail, and the Tippecanoe River ford where several early indian trails crossed the river.
Potawatomi Wildlife Park shall be a place where the natural, historical, and cultural features of the area are conserved, protected, and restored for use and enjoyment by present and future generations.
The mission of Potawatomi Wildlife Park is to:
- Maintain a place for low-impact recreation where the public can enjoy the solitude of nature, commune with wildlife, and gain an understanding of local history.
- Provide educational programs and opportunities for all people.
- Provide a community and regional gathering place.
