IU Northwest's Campus Nature Preserve
Faculty of the Biology Department manage the Little Calumet River Prairie and Wetlands Nature Preserve just north of campus (owned by the city of Gary). See the Pride of IU article about the devoted work of Dr. Spencer Cortwright for more information about the preserve. Also read editions of "Nature News" relating to our campus nature preserve and the ecology of our NW Indiana region at the links below.
The Biology Department is also home to the Northwest Indiana Restoration Monitoring Inventory (NIRMI). Learn more here.
