We Need Help Getting Our New Office Habitat Into Shape Before Winter!

In August, the IWF headquarters moved from our Zionsville location to an historic building on Michigan Street in downtown Indianapolis. The benefits and amenities of the building and location of our new offices are incredible! We have been working with our new landlord and other building tenants on plans to make the most of our urban office location. We are formulating plans to clean up and plant the limited green space near our parking lot and building with native plants, build a raised bed garden, install a water feature and other items that will meet and exceed the standards for wildlife habitat certification. 

Our first work day is scheduled Friday, November 8th, 2013 at 1pm. We will be preparing the islands/beds for spring planting. 

Our new building is located at 708 East Michigan Street. We are on the north side of the street and our parking lot is between Fulton St. and Spring St. There is plenty of free parking! Volunteers should bring gloves and shovels. We'll provide the hot drinks!
