According to a press release issued by the Department of Natural Resources, The Natural Resources Commission (NRC) approved the dedication of Clemens Place on Clifty Creek Nature Preserve in Greene County during its regularly scheduled meeting yesterday at Fort Harrison State Park. This 58-acre nature preserve includes a portion of the Clifty Creek canyon, which features towering sandstone bluffs and a karst sink.

The action increases the number of state-designated sites protected by the Nature Preserves Act to 297.

  • Where is this located? My family and I would love to visit but I'm not finding a location on any maps.

  • Anna, our apologies. The press release sent to us says no more than what this story does. I would recommend calling the DNR. I searched their website, several map sites and I never found it either. Here is the contact info for their public relations officer:
