The Winter-Spring 2022 issue of The Twig is "The Wildlife Issue." The majority of the 121 properties in our care are managed only for the native plants and animals that live there. For many rare and threatened species, undisturbed habitat means a chance at survival. 

In this expanded issue, we explore how we observe and protect the wildlife community on our preserves and share wildlife conservation success stories that inspire us and guide our work, including signs that threatened and vulnerable populations are bouncing back and thriving on the land in our care. Sycamore's first comic strip by Ellen Bergan, Land Stewardship Assistant, captures the beauty of wading through a local beaver wetland to appreciate Indiana's remarkable biodiversity.
