NICHES mission is to protect, restore and sustain northern Indiana’s ecosystems by providing habitat for native species and offering natural places for education, appreciation and enjoyment of current and future generations.
We went to Gladys and Al Wright Rock Creek Reserve and Crow’s Grove and found [colonies of blooming snow trillium at both properties]. We really enjoyed the delightful stream and it's 'canyon' at Wright Rock Creek. Absolutely beautiful. And all in "Wonderful Warren County. We had a great time exploring NICHES properties we were not familiar with. What delightful "niches" to preserve, restore, and explore. We are looking forward to exploring many more this year.”
Serving for a decade has been a privilege for me. NICHES was a grass roots non profit in its 10th year. We have grown up to be one of the leading state land trusts in Indiana. I learned about the counties surrounding Tippecanoe and how much they had to offer. And the friends I made along the way made me a better person.
By restoring riparian areas along the Wildcat to good quality habitats, NICHES is showing how and why this work is important, and encouraging other landowners to get involved.
". . . land and land rights gifted to [local organizations like NICHES], and the financial generosity of the many local residents that support the civic projects, big and small, that make this community a richer, more interesting place to call home.”
