We are thrilled to announce that Shirley Heinze Land Trust has acquired a 176-acre property in St. Joseph County. The property contains one of the last remaining bog habitats in Indiana, and it represents a milestone for the organization as its first land conservation project outside of Lake, Porter, and LaPorte Counties.
Earlier this year, we successfully concluded our first-ever Capital Campaign.
In 2013 we embarked on a project to raise $3.5 million dollars to permanently protect an additional 500 acres of environmentally significant land, provide enhanced restoration, maintenance, and management of new and existing preserves, and educate and promote conservation awareness by providing increased access to natural areas.
We celebrated 35 years of land conservation in Northwest Indiana at our annual spring benefit on June 4. The event was held at Valparaiso University’s Harre Union, with more than 400 supporters and guests in attendance.
