IAIS has several leisurely nature trails winding through our 15 acre property, all leading to the replicated Algonkian village. The Red Trail is 0.34 miles, the Yellow Trail is 0.16 miles, the Blue Trail is 0.07 miles and the Green Trail - the most direct route to the village - is 0.04 miles. All trails are family-friendly.
Each trail features deciduous and coniferous groves of trees indigenous to the Eastern Woodlands, as well as plant and tree identification signs. These signs reveal traditional Native American uses for parts of the trees. For instance, did you know that in addition to more commonly known uses like making baskets out of birch bark and bows out of hickory, Native Americans also used to chew White Pine sap like chewing gum and use American Beech twigs as toothbrushes?
