The Donald and Mary Frame Little Calumet River Conservation Area

This land was purchased from the Don and Mary Frame family to protect open space near the East Branch of the Little Calumet River and the terminus of Reynolds Creek. Funding came from the NIPSCO Consent Decree Mitigation Fund, and the Indiana Heritage Trust. The State of Indiana owns a conservation easement on the property which will prevent it from ever being developed. As permanently protected and managed open space it will allow the percolation of rain water slowly into the ground which will also clean the water.
