Preserve Indiana's Public Lands for Future Generations

Indiana’s natural legacy is increasingly threatened by urbanization, loss of critical habitat for wildlife, invasive species and less participation in outdoor recreation.

Public lands in Indiana represent only about 4% of our state.

Fewer classrooms are dedicated to outdoor education

Less than 4% of Indiana’s wetlands remain, and the State Wildlife Action Plan identifies the loss of grasslands as the single greatest threat to wildlife.

Your investment will help us change the statistics through stronger protection, preservation, education and conservation efforts.

What We Do

We work diligently with the Indiana Department of Natural Resources to identify the greatest conservation needs, adventurous outdoor education opportunities and new ways to introduce Hoosiers to nature by providing exciting outdoor recreation opportunities. Next, we work with you. We seek partners and sponsors who are committed to making a difference in Indiana.
