Why You Should Visit
In 1974, Shrader-Weaver Woods in Fayette County was dedicated as a State Nature Preserve and a National Natural Landmark. This preserve offers a number of sites to see: old-growth forest, floodplain, successional forest, a seep spring, a 1830s-era homestead, and one of the best wildflower displays in Indiana. Though the incredible mix of wildflowers brings quite a draw, many believe that winter is the best time to visit. No matter what time of year, Shrader-Weaver Woods is certain to please.
This preserve is owned and managed by the Indiana Division of Nature Preserves.
