ACRES Land Trust’s office is temporarily closed for renovation. ACRES will staff limited on-site hours Fridays 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Dustin Barn, 1992 Chapman Road, Huntertown, IN 46748. Trails remain open from dawn to dusk.
Trails wind through meadows and woodlands, one leading to a wetland filled in springtime with horned bladderwort and the call of spring peepers. Another trail climbs a steep hill along the preserve’s southern boundary formed by Cedar Creek, one of the only three designated Indiana Natural, Scenic, and Recreational Rivers.
The ACRES office is located at this preserve at 1802 Chapman Rd, Huntertown, IN 46748. Built of cedar and stone on a bluff high over Cedar Creek, the office was originally the home of Tom and Jane Dustin, two of the founding members of the organization.
