The Spring Benefit is our most important annual outreach and fundraising effort! Join our email list to follow along and help celebrate our 40th anniversary!



Celebrating 40 Years of Connecting Communities to Nature

From May 24-May 29, we’ll share video stories that celebrate our achievements and highlight exciting new initiatives that will launch the organization into the future. You’ll learn more about our work to promote climate resiliency, establish conservation destinations at Meadowbrook Nature Preserve in Valparaiso and Lydick Bog Nature Preserve in St. Joseph County and connect communities to nature throughout 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.
