Field Trip, Saturday, June 7, 2014: Salt Creek Sanctuary, Franklin Co., IN

2014/06/01

The 250-acre Salt Creek Nature Sanctuary is a beautiful natural area located in Southeastern Indiana, about 55 minutes from Oxford, Ohio. Formerly a hill farm, the site has not been farmed since its purchase by Don and Pat Kaufman in 1983. Deep valleys, running streams, and wooded ravines mark its rolling terrain. Old- growth stands on the steep slopes mix with second- and third-growth stands on the higher, flatter areas; old fields and riparian areas add to the overall diversity of the site. All of the land within the boundaries of Salt Creek is under conservation easement and will be managed in perpetuity by The Oxford Society, whose web site is at http://www.theoxfordsociety.org/salt_creek_sanctuary.html. Don Kaufman will host this visit. The trip will leave at 8:00 a.m. from the TJ Maxx parking lot (on Locust Street across from McDonald’s) and return to Oxford in the afternoon. Pack a lunch and bring binoculars if possible.
