Event Description:
The Lee Family Perfect Lake Nature Preserve, an ACRES Land Trust property, became Indiana's 289th state-dedicated nature preserve in September 2019. The majority of the 84-acre property occupies a prominent esker, offering great vistas over the small lake. About 25% of the property consists of Perfect Lake and adjoining wetlands, with the remaining portion consisting of successional mesic upland woods and agricultural field. Perfect Lake is an undeveloped mesotrophic lake with a marl bottom and healthy aquatic communities, marsh areas, and wetlands, including a significant portion of high quality fen/sedge meadow/marl flat. We will spend most of our time in this latter plant community but may also walk through a portion of the successional woods. There are no trails at the site.

The dedication ceremony recognizing the property as a state-dedicated nature preserve will take place at 12:15 PM.

Limit: 20 participants, by RSVP only.

Wear appropriate clothing and footwear (expect to be in saturated soil with pockets of shallow water); bring water, sunscreen, and bug spray. You may wish to bring a camera, binoculars, and a hand lens.

There are no restroom facilities on the property, so plan accordingly.
