Field Trip - Summit Lake

Saturday, Mar 30, 2019 at 1:00pm

Summit Lake State Park
5993 N Messick Road
New Castle, IN 47362

We’ll gather at the intersection of Henry Co. Rds. 500 E and 750 N at 1 p.m. to explore the ponds known collectively as the Nature Area, just outside the northeast corner of the park.  Later, we’ll probably go into the park, which may require an entry fee.

Carpoolers will leave from the Cooper Science lot on the Ball State campus at noon.
To get there on your own:  From Muncie, take U.S. 35 south.  Just before you enter the small town of Mt. Pleasant, turn right onto County Rd. 396, aka Buck Creek Rd.  Follow it for several miles until it comes to a “T” with County Rd. 750 N.  Turn right, and the first cross road you come to will be 500 E.
