An 88-acre nature preserve in Allen County -- near Woodburn, Ind. -- will be dedicated Saturday by ACRES Land Trust and the Department of Natural Resources' Division of Nature Preserves.

John Bacone, director of DNR’s Division of Nature Preserves, will speak at the grand opening and dedication ceremony for Blue Cast Springs Nature Preserve at 10 a.m., according to the DNR's public information office.

Blue Cast Springs Natures Preserve was acquired by the partners of ACRES Land Trust, including the Indiana Heritage Trust, the Bicentennial Nature Trust and DNR Division of Nature Preserves in 2012.

The preserve, which has 3,000 feet of frontage on the Maumee River, is a nesting area for great blue herons and features mature trees, wildflowers and a natural spring.

The dedication ceremony will be 10 a.m. at the nature preserve, 21412 Bluecast Road, Woodburn.

In addition to Indiana Heritage Trust and Bicentennial Nature Trust, other partners and donors for the acquisition of the property include the Mary C. and Perry F. Spencer Foundation, the Suedhoff Memorial Trust and several individuals.
