The Future of Our Natural World Needs You

This year we are holding our annual Spring Benefit online! We invite you to join us from now through the end of May as we share stories from some of the people who are making a difference in our organization, and take a look at how you can help us safeguard the future of land conservation in northwestern Indiana.

The mission of Shirley Heinze Land Trust is to preserve and restore natural lands and waters in northwestern Indiana, and to engage people in nature and conservation.
