INDIANAPOLIS (AP): The Healthy Rivers Initiative aimed at restoring riverfront habitats in Indiana has added nearly 500 acres in the southeast corner of the state. The Healthy Rivers Initiative began in 2010 with the objective to permanently protect nearly 70,000 acres. The project has protected 30,500 acres to date. DNR Director Cameron Clark says the acquisition shows the state is making progress in protecting natural areas that will provide habitat for wildlife and recreational opportunities for Indiana residents.
