The Hoosier State is rich in natural treasures!

The Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF) has helped protect some of Indiana’s most treasured places. The program is set to expire on September 30 if Congress does not reauthorize. Just in Indiana alone, LWCF has funded $199 million in projects over the past five decades, protecting places such as the Hoosier National Forest and the Dunes National Lakeshore, but also state and local parks across Indiana. Learn more about the LWCF!

Since 1959, The Nature Conservancy in Indiana has protected more than 80,000 acres of forests, wetlands, prairies, lakes and streams for current and future generations to enjoy.

We are lucky enough to be housed in the Efroymson Conservation Center, our LEED Platinum-certified headquarters in downtown Indianapolis. See what we’re doing to protect land and water in the Hoosier State!
