Gibson Woods Nature Preserve Guided Hike, Lake County

End Date: 6/16/2018End Time: 12:00 PM
Event Description:

 The Division of Nature Preserves is teaming up with some of our partner organizations and land trusts to hold a series of hikes on nature preserves.  The partner for this hike is Lake County Parks.

This tract is a remnant of the very rare “ridge and swale” topography formed thousands of years ago during the retreat of glaciers. It contains the longest undissected dune ridge in Indiana, outside of the National Lakeshore. Communities found here include dry-mesic sand savanna with an overstory of black oak and an understory of bracken fern, mesic sand prairie, and wet-mesic forest. A number of rare plants are found on site.
