Taylor Wilson, Conservation Technician and Outreach Assistant
Teter Retreat and Organic Farm, in partnership with The Indiana Wildlife Federation, received a grant from Duke Energy Foundation to add a new nature trail to their property. Teter Retreat and Organic Farm sits on 125 acres and is located near Strawtown; northeast Hamilton County. Well known for their participation in local farmer's markets providing organic produce, Teter is also home to many acres of river habitat along the White River. However, like many areas along the river, the native species are threatened by invasives such as Asian Bush Honeysuckle and Callery Pear. This grant is intended not only to provide access to recreation at a beautiful site, but also open the site up to restoration efforts to remove invasives and enhance wildlife habitat.
