About this Location

A special beauty for the campus, The Bluffton University Nature Preserve, has long been a place for appreciating the natural world and for learning. It is located at the northwest edge of campus at 10625 Augsburger Road, Bluffton. Its 160 acres are home to woodland and grassland trails, a riverine ecosystem, and a small lake wildlife habitat.

Students visit the preserve for various reasons from academics to student life activities. You may find yourself there for events during Fall Welcome Week, Spiritual Life Week, or for a 60 in 6 activity. Students, faculty, and staff visit for picnics, jogging and walking, for classes, and more.

The nature preserve is open during daylight hours. People using the preserve must stay on mowed trails. Current students may use the pond for water sports and catch and release fishing. Pick up a map and guidelines for the preserve at the Marbeck Center desk.
