About NICHES Land Trust
Together we're protecting a 'niche here' and a 'niche there' to preserve the wonderful biodiversity in west-central Indiana.
Responsible conservation happens through collaboration.
how we serve
NICHES serves the following counties:
NICHES Land Trust is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization protecting west-central Indiana's native ecosystems and connecting people to nature.
The support of people, foundations and businesses that care about their surroundings is what makes NICHES possible. We do not receive support via taxes from the county, state or federal government.
what we believe
Native Plants and Animals
The study of our natural resources contributes to our understanding and appreciation of the lands and waters.
Public Access and Private Landowners
Private landowners have an important role to play in helping to provide larger ecological and social benefits for the local community.
Stewardship and Sustainability
The long-term viability of our organization is a critical to achieving our vision so that future generations can enjoy the same quality natural experiences as we do today.

Why land conservation is important:
Think about all the beauty around us, and what if that were gone? What if the people who come after us didn’t get the chance to walk in the woods, to see the stream, to look at different colors of leaves and flowers? It’s something we have to watch out for. We must protect it.
There are organizations that don’t define conservation like NICHES does. NICHES does it right: they think about always and forever.
Conservation should be about always and forever.
