McCloskey's Burr Oak Savanna Nature Preserve, Lake County

End Date: 9/15/2018End Time: 12:00 PM
Event Description:

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.

Mesic savannas once covered thousands of acres across Indiana.  This natural community type is currently one of the rarest habitats in the state.   Savannas composed of large bur oaks and whites oaks still occur primarily in Lake County around Hobart and Crown Point.  McCloskey’s Burr Oak Savanna Nature Preserve protects, in perpetuity, one for the State’s few remaining mesic savanna natural communities.  Furthermore, McCloskey’s Burr Oak Savanna also contains remnants of prairie and marsh habitats.  September is a great month to observe prairie and savanna plants at McCloskey’s Burr Oak Savanna Nature Preserve.
