Conservation Around Southeast Indiana
Our 10 counties make up almost one-tenth of the total area of Indiana, covering almost 2.1 million acres or 3,273 square miles. Of this acreage, close to 100,000 acres are publicly owned by such entities as state parks, state forests, state fish and wildlife areas, and national fish and wildlife areas. Other conserved areas are on private land, such as wetlands protected by the federal government and natural areas protected by land trusts, including OHC schools.
We are proud to be a part of the mix of conservation options in southeast Indiana. We see ourselves as a resource for people who want to explore the natural world and preserve our natural heritage. If you share our vision, we hope you’ll get involved.
