Fourth Tuesday of Every Month
6 to 7 PM

Get a closer look at nature as a guide leads you on an educational walk along our nature trail. The Haan Museum rests on five acres near downtown Lafayette, which includes a three-acre woods behind the mansion. The nature trail starts at the edge of the woods, and winds down to the bottom of the property at Valley Street before returning to the top by another route. Thirty different species of trees native to Indiana are identified with educational signs. Other signs are written about non-native and invasive species, fruits of different trees, and other subjects.

The upper part of the trail is a little too difficult to be called easy, and some agility is required as it passes over rocks, inclines, and narrow paths. The lower part of the trail is more rugged, and requires better conditioning. The loop trail is about a mile long, and feels very much like a wilderness experience in the middle of town.

Nature Walks are the fourth Tuesday of every month from April through October, from 6-7 PM. Meet at the nature trail entrance located on the south side of the carriage house just off the parking lot.
