Stout Memorial Woodland

Stout Memorial Woodland is an Indiana dedicated state nature preserve, meaning it is recognized by the state to be an example of the beauty and biodiversity of pre-settlement Indiana. This forest is one of the finest upland hardwood stands in east central Indiana. Stout Memorial Woodland is home to numerous giant hardwood trees including tulip poplar, oak, walnut, maple, and beech. Beautiful throughout all seasons, spring wildflowers and brilliant fall foliage are not to be missed. 

A small, gravel parking area for this nature preserve is located off North County Road 300 West. The grassy lane behind the gate is for visitors to access the preserve on foot. After rain, some sections of the trail may be muddy. Boardwalks are located over wet areas.

History of Stout Memorial Woodland

In 2013, Red-tail Land Conservancy acquired the 36-acre Stout Memorial Woodland in Henry County, Indiana to preserve and protect forever.

The history of Stout Memorial Woodland revolves around Sam and Stella Stout and their family whose community spirit and perseverance led to the preservation of one of east central Indiana’s last remaining old growth hardwood forests.
