Wintergreen Woods Nature Preserve Guided Hike, LaPorte County
Start Date: 6/8/2019Start Time: 10:00 AM
End Date: 6/8/2019End Time: 12:00 PM
Event Description:

This is a remnant Northern Boreal Flatwoods Natural Community, which is a type of forest restricted to a narrow area just south of the Lake Michigan Dunes. During wet seasons most of the preserve has standing water in it due to poorly drained areas on the preserve and the numerous “tip-ups” that occur as a result of trees which have toppled over during wind storms. Plant species found here are usually characteristic of species found much farther north and include paper birch, and number of sedge species, goldthread, Canada mayflower, and starflower.

Directions: From the east side of Michigan City, go north on SR 212 to CR 900 N (about 2.7 miles). Turn right (east). The road jogs left, then right just before the preserve, becoming CR 925 N. The preserve is just past the intersection of CR 375 W and CR 925 N, on the north side of the road.

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

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

No restroom facilities.

Register with the red icon at top right.
