The Robert C. and Ruth J. Frame Little Calumet River Conservation Area

This land was purchased from a Frame family trust to protect open space near the East Branch of the Little Calumet River and Reynolds Creek. 50% of the funding came from the Enbridge L-6B Mitigation Fund, administered by The Conservation Fund, and 50% from the Indiana Bicentennial Nature Trust. The State of Indiana AND the US Fish and Wildlife Service both hold conservation easements on the property which will prevent it from ever being developed. As permanently protected and managed open space it will allow the storage and percolation of rain water and snowmelt into the ground which will also clean the water.
