Saturday, October 10, 10 am - noon
Tom and Jane Dustin Nature Preserve
1802 Chapman Road, Huntertown, IN 46748
The ACRES office, originally the home of Tom and Jane Dustin, two of ACRES’ founding members, is located on this preserve. Eminent conservationists, Tom and Jane helped pass many of Indiana’s most significant pieces of conservation statutes, including the Nature Preserves Act.

The preserve adjoins the Robert C. and Rosella C. Johnson and Whitehurst Nature Preserves. Trails wind through high quality upland, ravine, floodplain forest, and steep bluffs along the north bank of Cedar Creek.
Presented by Ben Hess, IDNR Regional Ecologist and Casey Jones
RSVP to Ben Hess by October 9th:
260-368-7594 or bhess@dnr.in.gov

Thursday, October 15, 5 – 6 pm
Tom and Jane Dustin Nature Preserve Barn
1802 Chapman Road, Huntertown, IN 46748
Entrance to the barn is east of the main entrance to the ACRES office
Pick your own pace as you travel through the Dustin nature preserve. Three groups will leave the Dustin barn — one taking a casual walk through the property, one jogging at a moderate pace, and one motivated group taking a high intensity run up and down the ravine paths of the preserve.
Presented by a volunteer docent guide, Jason Kissel and Mark O’Shaughnessy.
