Dedicated May 9, 1991, Chaney Lake State Nature Preserve consists of 169 acres of intermittently flooded low-lying fields and woodlands. Chaney Lake, located near Woodburn in Warren County, is one of two "transient" lakes in the area. The lake forms when heavy rains cause groundwater levels to rise and overflow onto the surface through several sinkholes located in the low-lying depression. The area is well known to birdwatchers for the abundance of migrant waterfowl and shorebirds that pass through the area in the spring.
