Guided Hike at Eby Prairie and Elkhart Bog, Elkhart County
Start Date: 7/29/2017Start Time: 10:00 AM
Event Description:
Eby Prairie and Elkhart Bog, "Sand Prairies and Restored Oak Woodland"

This event starts at 10 am and ends at 12:30 pm.

A special hike celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Division of Nature Preserves!

This will be a special opportunity to visit two exciting places. Eby Prairie is one of the eastern most prairie remnants in Indiana. Over the years extensive restoration has been performed to strengthen the remnant core, and to expand the prairie into previously disturbed land. The prairie at Elkhart Bog buffers the bog and provides habitat for animals, such as turtles, that need both wetland and upland habitat. It is a very successful prairie restoration. You will be surprised by the beautiful prairie where crops once grew. We will not be able to visit the bog itself.

Neither prairie has mowed trails, so plan on long pants, sturdy shoes or boots, and socks.

  • Wear appropriate clothing and footwear, bring water, sunscreen, and bug spray.
  • Bring binoculars and a hand lens, if you have them.
  • No restroom facilities.
