The Natural Resources Commission (NRC) approved Ravinia Seeps Spring Nature Preserve in Morgan County as a new nature preserve during its regularly scheduled meeting today at Fort Harrison State Park.
The move increases to 280 the number of state-designated sites protected by the Nature Preserves Act, which is 50 years old this year.
Ravinia Seeps Spring Nature Preserve is owned and operated by the DNR Division of Forestry. The preserve is in the Brown County Hills Section of the Highland Rim Natural Region and comprises 52.40 acres. It protects a geologically unique and biologically rich valley and associated uplands.
