NICHES Land Trust Excecutive Director Gus Nyberg told the crowd. "I know
how important Sugar Creek is to people throughout the state of Indiana,
which many people will agree is the best stream in the state."
"One of the special aspects of Sugar Creek is that it has the largest bloc of
formerly glaciated forest in the entire state. It affords us the best
opportunity to protect populations of songbirds and other species in this
type of forest, the beginning of an effort to achieve a truly meaningful
and lasting conservation on the Indiana landscape."
