Review for Shirley Heinze Land Trust, Inc, Valparaiso, IN, USA
My first contact with Shirley Heinze Land Trust (SHLT) came shortly after I moved to Northwest Indiana and went on a wildflower walk sponsored by the organization. I saw for the first time what a preserved area looks like--it was spring and beautiful woodland flowers were everywhere--trillium, Dutchman's breeches, anemone. I have been a fan of the organization ever since and have volunteered in many capacities. SHLT acquires parcels of land that contain plants and animals that are threatened by development. It gives many people the opportunity to help preserve these areas and restore them. It is a well-run organization with dynamic leadership and friendly staff.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
I would like to see a campaign for a vehicle that could transport groups to the various preserved areas.
