LEND A HAND FOR THE LAND

yuhas-gartlic-scoutsRed-tail Land Conservancy has an vital mission: to preserve, protect, and restore natural areas and farm land in east central Indiana while increasing awareness of our natural heritage. It is a big task and we have been successful, with over 2,600 acres permanently preserved in east central Indiana. Red-tail Land Conservancy plans for a future where the natural beauty and working lands of our community still exists.

We need your help to carry out this mission of preserving land forever. Hands-on outdoor work to restore natural habitat feels good, and it is fun to meet people who share an interest in conservation. Working with our professional staff, you will learn about nature and enjoy our preserved lands that may not be accessible to the public. Volunteer with Red-tail Land Conservancy and make a difference in a visible way.
