Indiana Natural Areas: Tippecanoe County

Granville Sand Barrens

Granville Sand Barrens is an outstanding example of a habitat that is exceedingly rare in Indiana. Sandy, well-drained soils support species adapted to dry conditions. Vegetation grades shorter to the north; in spring look for fringed puccoon and their five-part yellow-orange flowers. Expect local canine escorts, typically friendly, at least in my experience.
