NICHES Birthday Fundraising Campaign is June 1 - 22!


Support NICHES Land Trust and 29 years of helping ecosystems survive! Every gift made during the NICHES Birthday Campaign will be matched by a generous community member – meaning your gift will have double the impact. 100% of your gift will go toward NICHES' mission to protect, restore, and sustain Northern Indiana’s ecosystems by providing habitat for native species and offering natural places for the education, appreciation, and enjoyment of current and future generations.

Pledge a monthly gift of $29 or more and receive a special token of appreciation!

To commemorate this year's birthday, a lovely NICHES supporter is sponsoring a limited run of "Give a Dam About Native Habitats" shirts designed by a local artist.

By joining NICHES you make it possible to protect your natural surroundings.
