thornhill nature preserve
Huntington University operates Thornhill Nature Preserve for the educational enrichment of its own students and schoolchildren throughout the region.
The private 77-acre reserve includes a variety of diverse habitats, including evergreen and deciduous forest, a woodland pond, meadows and wetlands. The diverse ecosystem supports a wide variety of wildflowers, trees, mammals and birds.
While Thornhill is not currently open to the public, we invite school teachers to contact us to arrange a classroom field trip.
Thornhill is located 8 miles north of Huntington, Indiana (get directions).
The cost of the program is $2 per student. There is no charge for teachers or adult chaperones.
