PARKE COUNTY, Ind. (WTHI) - Turkey Run State Park will be benefiting from a recent grant from the Indiana Natural Resources Foundation worth $10,000.

This grant will go towards improving trail 3 which leads to Rocky Hollow-Falls Canyon Nature Preserve.

Officials report the reserve protects hundreds of acres of old-growth upland and floodplain forest. This includes one of the highest concentrations of scenic rock-walled gorges found in Indiana.

“The Foundation is excited to partner with REI because of their commitment to the protection and preservation of our natural resources,” said Jody Kress, INRF executive director. “We greatly appreciate their generosity and look forward to working with them on important projects through the DNR.” 

This grant will make the trail more user friendly.
