ACRES Land Trust members make it possible to protect natural places and working land. In recognition of member commitment – and for fun! – ACRES invites members to share in unique land-based activities and outings all year long.


The health and safety of our ACRES family is paramount, as is the public health of our communities.

The ACRES Office is closed due to COVID-19. We’ll see you soon. If you need to reach a staff member, please email [email protected] or call 260-637-2273 to leave a message.

Thanks to member support, our trail systems remain open 7 days a week, from dawn to dusk, at no charge. It’s no secret that spending time in nature benefits us both physically and emotionally. Feeling cooped up and stressed out? Find fresh air, peace and renewal at an ACRES preserve near you.
