Stoutsburg Savanna

Indiana Natural Areas: Jasper County


Stoutsburg Savanna

Stoutsburg Savanna

Stoutsburg is a large oak savanna tract encompassing several smaller open areas dominated by prairie vegetation. A dirt road leads from the gate and soon connects with other roads that allow access to the interior. The east-central portion of the property contains a large stand of impressive prairie grasses standing at least eight feet high. Grasses in areas closer to 1100N are less exuberant, but the simultaneous presence of plants like rattlesnake master, blazing star, compass plant, and prairie dock make up for it. Standing water can pool for days after a good rain.
