ABOUT THE PARK
Bluhm woods is a special place that is a beautiful, unspoiled example of Indiana’s mature beech – maple forest. Pockets of transitory wetlands and understory species of shrubs lend variety and habitat for frogs, toads, butterflies and a great variety of birds. Both year-round residents and migrants who require undisturbed nesting habitat are attracted to these woods.
