Review for Shirley Heinze Land Trust, Inc, Valparaiso, IN, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

I joined the Board of Shirley Heinze Land Trust in 2005. Since that time, we have been able to add hundreds of acres to our land holdings. These lands will be protected in perpetuity and many of them are being stewarded back to their pre-settlement condition. Several of our properties are state dedicated nature preserves that allow access to the public for their enjoyment and appreciation. We also conduct learning programs on several of our properties that are adjacent to schools, thus providing young children with an appreciation for nature that will sustain the environment into the future.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

learning about the environmental history of Northwest Indiana and seeing more of it being protected.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

dedicated to preserving the environment for future generations.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

purchase the remaining valuable green space along the southern Lake Michigan watershed.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?
