Engage your senses and your moods by experiencing the variety of environments. Walk through prairies, woodlands and wetlands.
Gabis Arboretum’s prairies are indicative of the tallgrass prairies that once covered vast acres of the Midwest, including parts of northwest Indiana. Planted at various times from 1996 to 2000, these prairies continue to change and grow.
There are a variety of wetlands at Gabis Arboretum. West of the Meyer Pavilion along the Owl Trail is the Buttonbush Swamp, dominated by buttonbush shrubs.
Explore our woodlands, which are made up of majestic oak and hickory trees, hawthorn, black cherry, hazelnut and Viburnum. The forest canopy is closed and fallen trees cover its floor, providing habitat for a diverse variety of plants and animals.
