Mary Thornton Nature Preserve Field Trip

Saturday, April 22nd at 9:30 am
Mary Thornton Nature Preserve  (Wabash)

This ACRES Land Trust property provides a great example of an oak/hickory forest being converted into a beech/maple forest. The understory is native and diverse, and the property contains ephemeral wetlands that provide amphibian habitat and breeding areas. Even though the preserve is relatively small, wildlife is abundant.

Directions: From Wabash at SR 13 and US 24, take SR 13 nort 2.6 miles to 300 N and turn right (east). Travel 1.4 miles to the preserve on the right.
