Green's Bluff Nature Preserve Guided Hike, Owen County
Start Date: 5/4/2019Start Time: 10:00 AM
End Date: 5/4/2019End Time: 12:00 PM
Event Description:

This nature preserve protects a portion of Raccoon Creek, along with a block of upland forest habitat in both Indiana’s Crawford Upland and Escarpment Section of the Shawnee Hills Natural Region.

This Nature Preserve protects a high quality example of an upland ravine forest complex with dry-mesic, mesic, and floodplain forests.  It is an integral part of the Raccoon Creek Valley with steep hemlock-covered cliffs, broad floodplain forests, a great blue heron rookery and unique tributary ravines. These community types along with their expected component flora and fauna contain many species that are area-sensitive forest interior plants and animals dependent upon large, unfragmented forest ecosystems.    

Directions: From Spencer take SR 46 east to McCormick’s Creek State Park. Just east of the park entrance is SR 43. Turn south (right) onto SR 43 and go for 5 miles to CR 525S (Sheffeld Rd). Turn west (right) onto Sheffeld Rd and continue for 1 mile to the ‘T’. Turn south (left) at the ‘T’ and keep left. After about 0.4 mile this road ends. Park near the cemetery. Walk 0.5 mile along the old logging road (continuing where the county road ends) into the preserve.

Wear appropriate clothing and footwear, bring water, sunscreen, and bug spray.

Bring binoculars and a hand lens, if you have them.

No restroom facilities.
