Shirley Heinze Land Trust

Who We Are

Shirley Heinze Land Trust is a vibrant partnership of volunteers, donors, professionals, business and industry, working together to protect the amazing natural places we have in northwestern Indiana.


What We Do

Our mission is to preserve, protect, and restore significant natural areas in northwest Indiana, and to educate, inspire, and invite the public to experience the natural wonders of our unique region.

We protect and manage over 2100 acres of important natural ecosystems in Lake, Porter, LaPorte, and St. Joseph Counties. Five of our preserves are dedicated state nature preserves, and many of our preserves are open to the public for passive recreation.
