#21in21: Stone Head Fall Sparrow Field Trip
October 16 @ 8:00 am - 11:00 am EDT
Stone Head Nature Preserve is a 122-acre, privately-owned nature preserve set in the beautiful hills of Brown County in south central Indiana. The Preserve has four basic habitat types within its borders, all of which have maintained trails so everyone can enjoy all of the Preserve. First and foremost among these habitats would have to be the Zimmerman Wetland Bird Habitat. This area has six restored wetland impoundments that sport almost all of Indiana’s species of frogs and toads, scores of bird species, as well as a wide variety of dragonflies, damselflies, spiders, mammals, snakes, butterflies, moths, and so much more, not to mention a great diversity of plant life that supports all of these wildlife species.
