Founded in 1990, the Little River Wetlands Project is a nonprofit land trust that works towards preserving and restoring wetlands areas in northeast Indiana. The organization also works towards educating people on how to be good stewards of nature. The Little River Wetlands Project protects about 1,300 acres of Indiana wetlands including nature preserves in Huntington County and Allen County.
Why do they need our support?
The preservation of natural ecosystems is very important because these natural areas give us food to eat, air to breathe, and freshwater to drink and water crops. These are all things humans need to live. To be a good steward of nature means to protect and preserve nature, so it remains healthy for many generations to come. Taking care of natural ecosystems also benefits the many species of animals that live within those ecosystems.
