Throughout the year, The Nature Conservancy in Indiana holds and supports a number of events and volunteer stewardship opportunities. Monthly stewardship workdays are posted here.

Though most of these events are open to the public, some may only be for Conservancy members. Some of our events are also inclusive to those who are members of the Indiana Chapter's Generation Conservation group. If interested in becoming a member, please contact Ann Smith at ahsmith@tnc.org for more information. We hope to see you soon!
