Proceeds from this event will be invested in a fund managed by Indiana Heritage Trust. This fund will be used to purchase ground around Mississinewa Lake, Indiana Department of Natural Resources, IDNR, as it becomes available. Conserving and managing land for today's visitors and future generations to enjoy, is the goal of the IDNR and the staff at Mississinewa Lake.
