On Saturday, April 28, the Porter County Chapter of the Izaak Walton League of America was honored to receive the assistance of Rebuilding Together Duneland. PCC is a 501c3 who’s mission is to defend soil, air, woods, waters and wildlife. Their Frame Family Little Calumet Conservation Area (a 124 year old farm) has been under restoration to convert it to its original natural state. The group needed some extra hands to accomplish goals that will lead toward their opening the property for public enjoyment and education. They are grateful to have had such a large group of RTD volunteers come out to plant trees, clear invasives, add new features to the Nature Playground and do some general ‘old farm’ clean-up. Volunteers from Porter’s Worthington Steel, CHS gymnastics and wrestling teams and Duneland’s generous citizens made short work of the to-do list.  PCC plans to invite school, scout and other groups to explore the 8 out of 10 of our region’s ecosystems present at the site. For more information about the conservation and education work IWLA-PCC does in NWI, find them on Facebook @PCCIWLA or visit www.NWIconservation.org.
