Shirley Heinze Land Trust is a vibrant partnership of volunteers, donors, professionals, business and industry, working together to preserve, protect and restore significant natural areas in northwest Indiana. Our mission is also to educate, inspire and invite the public to experience the natural wonders of our unique region.
Shirley Heinze Land Trust is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that has been protecting natural land in Northwest Indiana since 1981. It manages more than 2,100 acres in Lake , Porter , La Porte , and St. Joseph Counties. Included in the Heinze Trust’s holdings are examples of the entire spectrum of natural communities in this area: tallgrass prairie , high dune, oak savanna , boreal flatwoods, dune-and-swale, woodlands, marshes, swamps , ponds, fens, and riparian habitat. Five Heinze Trust properties are dedicated Indiana State Nature Preserves . Shirley Heinze Land Trust is a well established organization preserving these natural areas for present and future generations to enjoy. Volunteers like you help us keep these preserves healthy and open to the public!
