88.3 acres | 2 miles of trails
The ACRES office is located in this preserve. Built of cedar and stone on a bluff high over Cedar Creek, the office was originally the home of Tom and Jane Dustin, founding members of the organization. Trails wind through meadows and woodlands, one leading to a wetland filled in springtime with horned bladder wort and the call of spring peepers. Another trail climbs a steep hill along the preserve’s southern boundary formed by Cedar Creek, one of only three designated Indiana Natural, Scenic and Recreational Rivers.
This is a State Dedicated Nature Preserve protected under the Indiana Nature Preserves Act (1967) with the Indiana Department of Natural Resources, Division of Nature Preserves. ACRES was instrumental in the creation of the Nature Preserves Act.
