The Griffy Woods property is less than one mile from IU Assembly Hall and encompasses a great deal of landscape and biological diversity. The 185-acre site is adjacent to the City of Bloomington's Griffy Lake Nature Preserve and the Indiana University Championship Golf Course. The property contains both public recreational areas and private research sites. A diversity of successional stages, ranging from old fields to mature forest can be seen in different parts of the property. University Lake is also completely within the Preserve property.
