Sycamore Land Trust

Preserving land and connecting people to nature


Sycamore Land Trust

Environmental Education Program

Sycamore Land Trust believes that building an appreciation for nature is critical to our mission of protecting land and to creating a healthier Hoosier landscape. Our preserves offer opportunities for a hands-on approach to learning about nature. By providing environmental education to people of all ages, we increase the number who understand the value of nature and are therefore more likely to take steps to protect it.

Learn more about the program’s mission and offerings in our Environmental Education Program Statement.

 “Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better.”  -Albert Einstein
