Event Description:

Registration is full. 

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 INPAWS - Indiana Native Plant and Wildflower Society.

This nature preserve protects classic examples of the deeply entrenched tributaries of Sugar Creek in Indiana’s Entrenched Valley Section of the Central Till Plain Natural Region. This Nature Preserve consists of sandstone rock walled gorges featuring extensive outcrops of sandstone bedrock covered in unique cliff dwelling vegetation.  Seeps in the fractured bedrock provide a cool and protected environment for many species of ferns and mosses. The preserve also includes waterfall, and extremely rugged topography covered with high quality forests, and an extensive and healthy stand of Eastern Hemlock. Russell Bend is part of the Sugar Creek Conservation Area, owned by the Division of Fish and Wildlife and part of the Healthy Rivers Initiative, a large, significant conservation area along Sugar Creek involving many partners.
