Thank you to all who contributed! Together, we can stand up and defend the Crown Hill Forest.  See More

THE STORY:

Will you chip in with a tax-deductible contribution to defend a magnificent historic stand of woods at Crown Hill Cemetery?  This forest is an unparalleled ecological treasure in the city of Indianapolis, with over 40 species of trees, many of them older than our state itself.

And this forest is in grave and imminent danger. Here's why:

The Veterans Administration purchased the entirety of the old-growth Forest and plans to destroy it to build a columbarium. This columbarium is a much-needed development that could be built in several other locations without destroying an indispensable, one-of-a-kind living history.

The fact is that the VA failed to consider a single other place to build this project.

This proposed development is an insult to the veterans it claims to honor, who sacrificed tirelessly for America the Beautiful. To destroy that beauty in their name, when plenty of alternative locations exist, is a disgrace to their legacy.

We have filed an injunction in U.S. District Court to stop the project. The VA violated hard-fought federal environmental guidelines, and disregarded well-documented public opinion. We cannot let them get away with this.

Stand with us to build a legal defense fund to protect an irreplaceable piece of Hoosier history.

Your tax-deductible contribution goes to the Indiana Forest Alliance, a 501(c)(3). With your help, we can cover the legal fees necessary to save Crown Hill's North Woods. Thank you!
