Save the Dunes Conservation Fund and partners received a grant to restore approximately 14 acres of remnant foredune and black oak savanna habitat at Stockwell Woods in LaPorte County.  Project activities included:  control of ten invasive plant species; collection, propagation and planting of native plants; prescribed burning; and vegetation monitoring.  This work reduced the acreage infested by invasive species, improved native plant diversity and abundance, and helped increase water retention and slow runoff.  All activities incorporated community-based stewardship and green-collar job training.
