Bicentennial Nature Trust
In 1916, the State of Indiana authorized the creation of a state park system — Bicentennial Nature Trust (BNT) — during the state’s centennial as a gift to the people of Indiana. The BNT was created to preserve and protect important conservation and recreation areas throughout Indiana by matching donations of land or dollars. Property acquired with this fund will become part of the public trust to ensure that the land is protected for future generations of Hoosiers to use and enjoy. The state has identified $20 million in state funding to support the BNT and the Lilly Endowment contributed an additional $10 million grant.
