Land Trust: The Nature Conservancy’s Wabash River Initiative
The Garden Club of Indiana partners with The Nature Conservancy’s Wabash River Initiative to protect this treasure chest of rare and endangered species. By the end of October 2013, The Nature Conservancy had protected 10,041.58 acres along the Wabash River and was a little over halfway towards their goal of 20,000 acres with watersheds and two-step ditches. The project is also gaining national attention for its work to demonstrate how to protect and use cover crops to control the amount of nitrogen escaping farm fields at a watershed scale. In 2013, TCGI took in $1,000 more than last year, for a total of $3,414.89. A special thanks and congratulations to the North West District, who had 100% of clubs participating and raised more than $1,000 from their seven clubs.
