This year, friends and supporters of the Shirley Heinze Land Trust will
gather to celebrate four spectacular nature preserves, each a biological
treasure with significant recreational opportunities.
The Spring Benefit will take place at Sand Creek Country Club in Chesterton
at 5:30 p.m. and will be hosted with a new style of party. They will have an
elegant buffet dinner and plenty of unreserved seating throughout the club
as well as a beer, wine, and cash bar.
The four Natural Gems being celebrated are Meadowbrook, Ivanhoe South,
Ambler Flatwoods, and Little Calumet Wetlands Project. Students and Young
professionals can contact the office to receive discounted tickets. Please
RSVP on their website.
Shirley Heinze Land Trust manages approximately 1,300 acres of natural land
in LaPorte, Lake, and Porter Counties. Five of its properties – Cressmoor
Prairie, Seidner Dune & Swale, John Merle Coulter Preserve, Barker Woods,
and Ambler Flatwoods – have been dedicated to the people of Indiana as State
Nature Preserves. Included in the Heinze Trustís
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.
