Two nature preserves have received approval from the state’s Natural Resources Commission. The properties are located in Lake, Clark and Scott counties and represent more than 600 acres. The NRC says there are now 284 state-designated sites protected through the Nature Preserves Act.

The Outbrook Ravine Nature Preserve includes 519 acres in Clark and Scott counties and includes the Knobstone Trail, which is Indiana’s long-distance trail and is controlled by the Indiana Department of Natural Resources.

The Calumet Prairie Nature Preserve is located in Lake Station and includes some 119 acres within the Northwestern Morainal Natural Region.
