​Office of Land Stewardship​

The Office of Land Stewardship protects and manages natural habitats for people, wildlife, clean air, and clean water.

Check out our Land Stewardship Master Plan​
Across 37 properties, the Office of Land Stewardship cares for more than 1,500 acres of park natural areas, rain gardens that filter stormwater runoff, and conservation easements.

Land Stewardship helps preserve critical wildlife habitat, provide passive recreation opportunities, protect air quality, and address stormwater issues. We are a regional leader in protecting natural areas and helped Indianapolis become a National Wildlife Federation Top 10 City for Wildlife in 2015.

Explore Natural Areas

Natural areas provide a broad range of “ecosystem services”. That means natural areas have an important job in maintaining the quality of the environment we live in. They also provide Indianapolis residents and visitors with unique recreational opportunities.
Get Involved​

Come help us steward our natural areas! We regularly work with awesome volunteers to help clear invasive species and trash from our properties, as well as help with plantings, trails, or other amenities. Watch our social media accounts and join our mailing list to learn about volunteer opportunities. We’re all responsible for good stewardship. Looking for ideas for your own property? You can help make Indy healthy and sustainable too!
