Indiana Nature Preserves presented by Central Indiana Land Trust on June 12th at 7pm via Zoom. The natural areas in the central portion of Indiana are in some cases undervalued. Not only are they important to our personal well-being, but they also foster much beauty for those who have eyes to see it, especially if you know where to look! That’s where conservation organizations like Central Indiana Land Trust (CILTI) come in. Our mission at CILTI is to preserve the best of central Indiana’s natural areas, protecting 6,500 acres of habitat for plants and animals while providing a place for all Hoosiers to experience the wonder of our state’s natural heritage. There are some preserves we think everyone should know about. Each preserve has its own unique qualities that sets it apart and gives it an important role in our planet’s ecosystem. This presentation will discuss some of CILTI’s nature preserves, as well as why and how we are protecting these special places in central Indiana.

Phillip Weldy is the Stewardship Specialist for CILTI. He enjoys nature’s wonders he works to restore the natural places you love. As an AmeriCorps member in Asheville, NC, he had his first full immersion in relatively undisturbed land while reconstructing wilderness trails in National Parks and National Forests. That transformative experience made him decide to use his Purdue environmental biology degree in the field. He came to his stewardship role at CILTI after undertaking invasive species control and trail maintenance in Michigan. When not wrestling invasive plants in the field, he stays in fighting shape by kneading bread dough for fresh-baked loaves.

This program is open to everyone.
