Little Africa Wildlife Viewing Area
The Little Africa (LA) Wildlife Viewing Area is located on a 25-acre peninsula that juts out into Lake Lemon at its far eastern end. There is a parking lot at the base of the peninsula just off of Southshore Drive. A footpath, the total length of which is about a half of a mile, loosely follows the edge of the peninsula and loops back to the parking lot. There is a viewing platform located on the tip of the peninsula, about halfway down the footpath and an area just to the west northwest of the peninsula filled with lotus blossoms during the summer and fall months. The Sassafras Audubon Society of Bloomington currently manages Little Africa and maintains the area as an open old-field habitat. Motorized vehicles are prohibited on the path.
