Talk a walk with us!

WIPB-TV and Red-tail Land Conservancy will team up for a “Rare Indiana Nature Walk” on June 25 at McVey Memorial Forest, just north of Farmland in Randolph County.

The free, family-friendly walk will begin at 4 p.m. at the main parking lot off Hwy 1.

This 293-acre nature preserve is a wonderful example of upland forest, river bottom, prairie, and wetlands, as well as a 30 year restoration project. Bush Creek meanders through the woods to the Mississinewa River. The property’s trails traverse the hardwood forest over bridges and varied terrain. The McVey Memorial Forest is also adjacent to hundreds of acres of DNR forest, making this area one of the largest wildlife corridors in East Central Indiana.

The moderate hike will last about 60 minutes over varied terrain.

Guests should wear walking shoes and long pants. Water and bug spray are also recommended.

This walk is part of WIPB-TV’s Rare Indiana project, in conjunction with the PBS program “RARE – Creatures of the Photo Ark,” premiering in July on WIPB.
