Wanting to support the missions of Blue Heron Ministries, but not sure if collecting seeds or hacking away at Autumn Olive is for you? You may be interested in the endowments that we have through the Steuben County Community Foundation. These endowments assure that donations to a specific project or property are available well into the future.
There are three endowments set-up to benefit Blue Heron Ministries. They are the Badger Barrens Endowment Fund, the Feick Family Conservation Fund, and the Tamarack Lake Endowment Fund. Badger Barrens is a 13 acre property, located near Mirror Lake in Fremont, IN; the Feick Family Nature Preserve is a 4.5 acre wetland located just off the shore of Lake James on Bay View Road, in Angola; and Tamarack Lake Nature Preserve is an 80 acre property on the southwest shore of Tamarack Lake, one of the few remaining undeveloped lakes in Steuben County. You can read more about each of our properties on the Land Trust page of this website.
Donating to these funds is easy. You can use the secure link through the Community Foundation’s website (there is a 3% service charge), or you can send cash/check to the Steuben County Community Foundation at 1701 North Wayne St. Angola, IN 46703. Please specify either: Badger Barrens Endowment Fund, Feick Family Conservation Fund, or Tamarack Lake Endowment Fund when making your donation. All donations made through the Steuben County Community Foundation are tax deductible.
Thank you for your continued support and allowing us to be faithful stewards!
