Bradford Woods, established in June 2009, is located off State Road 67 between Martinsville and Mooresville, Indiana--southwest of Indianapolis. The northernmost 437 acres of the Bradford Woods property is managed by the IU Research & Teaching Preserve (RTP) and the rest is managed by the IU School of Public Health as an outdoor recreation center. The RTP area is the most remote portion of Bradford Woods. It offers a diverse landscape that includes eastern, western, southern, and northern facing slopes; a large perennial stream; and a contiguous block of forest with limited interior fragmentation. Bradford Woods offers lodging and dining facilities for extended field work not currently available at other IU RTP sites.
