Event Description:

There are no developed trails and hikers should be prepared to traverse uneven terrain through native vegetation. Long pants are recommended and the ability to step over a wire fence will be necessary.

This tract is a remnant of the very rare 'ridge and swale' topography that formed as glacial Lake Chicago receded thousands of years ago. Sandy beach ridges are paralleled by long, narrow ponds and marshes. Due to the close proximity of Lake Michigan, the water in the swales is alkaline, supporting a number of plants rarely found elsewhere in Indiana. The overall vegetation is a mix of elements from the west, north, and east. Fifty state ranked plants and a number of rare animals are found here, including blue hearts, paper birch, bearberry, a number of orchids, glass lizard and Franklin's ground squirrel.

Driving directions will be emailed to all registrants after registration has closed.

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

Rubber boots are not necessary but may help you explore without getting your feet wet.

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

No restroom facilities.

Register with the red icon at top right.
