Why You Should Visit
Dedicated as a State Nature Preserve in 1986, Green’s Bluff in Owen County is a large wooded riparian habitat with uplands, ravines, tributary valleys, steep cliffs, karst features, hemlock forest, and floodplain forest. The preserve also features a great blue heron rookery as well as an old grist mill whose remnants can be found in a bend of Raccoon Creek.
What The Nature Conservancy is Doing/has Done
The Conservancy has added important acreage and protected the site from imminent development. We are also actively pursuing more additions at the preserve to consolidate protection of oak forests. Ongoing stewardship tasks include trash removal, boundary posting, interior fence removal, and tree planting.
This work is done in partnership with the Indiana Department of Nature Preserves & Indiana Heritage Trust.
