40th Anniversary Spring Benefit

May 24, 2021 - May 29, 2021

Celebrating 40 Years of Connecting Communities to Nature

Since 1981 Shirley Heinze Land Trust has preserved more than 2,700 acres of
precious natural lands, wetlands, and waters for our communities; engaged
thousands of residents and visitors in local nature and conservation through
outreach and educational programming; and provided countless opportunities for
all ages to experience, explore, and feel inspired by nature.

The Spring Benefit is our most important annual outreach and fundraising effort!

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.
