About this event

Enjoy exploring the old growth forest in a nature walk guided by Phillip Weldy, our stewardship specialist. Meltzer Woods was designated a National Natural Landmark in 1974. This year marks 60 years of the National Parks Service recognizing conservation of America’s natural heritage through the NNL program. Meltzer is one of over 600 designated NNL sites, and one of our best-loved properties. Please join us in celebrating 60 years of the National Natural Landmarks program at this venerable site.

All Ages

RSVP required

What to Expect:

  • Easy, 1.2 mile trail with some stairs.
  • Dress in long pants thick enough to stand up to thorns, brush, poison ivy, ticks, and mosquitos (unfortunately leggings aren’t very protective).
  • Wear closed-toed shoes that can stand up to mud.

Directions

Meltzer Woods is located near Shelbyville and is a short 35 minute drive from Indianapolis. From Indianapolis, take I74 E to IN 244 E, then turn left onto S 600 East. Staff will meet you in the parking lot. Map:@Meltzer Woods
