what we believe
Native Plants and Animals
Native Plants and Animals
The Northern Indiana landscape is home to ecosystems of native plants and animals should be protected.

The study of our natural resources contributes to our understanding and appreciation of the lands and waters.
Public Access and Private Landowners
Public Access and Private Landowners
Access to and connection with natural areas and open space improves the quality of people’s lives. People in our region should be able to live among sustainable, healthy, attractive landscapes.

Private landowners have an important role to play in helping to provide larger ecological and social benefits for the local community.
Stewardship and Sustainability
Stewardship and Sustainability
Fostering an ethic of stewardship for the land and water is an important step to achieving lasting protection of native plants and animals.

The long-term viability of our organization is a critical to achieving our vision so that future generations can enjoy the same quality natural experiences as we do today.
