In 1937, Indiana’s General Assembly passed a resolution adopting Crossroads of America as the State’s official motto. However, this colloquial moniker does not reflect the scope of intersections that make Indiana unique. Here we find an epicenter where richly biodiverse natural lands, farms, industry, communities, and vast transportation corridors unite.
How is nature and Indiana’s natural heritage preserved despite significant fragmentation? Learn how the Indiana land trust movement, which dates back to 1960, bolsters state and local initiatives to protect Indiana’s landscape and its most important habitats and ecosystems.

Andrea is the executive director of Indiana Land Protection Alliance (ILPA). She has a deep appreciation for Indiana’s rich and diverse landscapes and admires the work being accomplished by Indiana land trusts and partners. Andrea graduated from Temple University and Chicago-Kent College of Law. She has been active with the land trust community since 2017. In her past conservation work, she generated awareness and support for habitats and ecosystems along the southern Lake Michigan Watershed.
