Shirley Heinze Land Trust has protected more than 2,600 acres across six counties in northwestern Indiana, from endangered dune and swale in Lake County to the kettle lakes of St. Joseph County. Whether you’re interested in helping us remove invasive species, leading hikes or assisting in fundraising activities, we would love to have your help!
