Kirk Yard Wetland Mitigation Vegetation Management

Gary, Indiana

This project involves the control of woody and herbaceous invasive species within five parcels near the Wisconsin Central Ltd Kirk Railroad Yard in Gary, Indiana. All five parcels are recognized as having some of the few remaining high-quality natural areas that contain historic dune and swale habitat located in northern Indiana. The five parcels include USX Prairie, Lakeshore Railroad Prairie, Area 8 East and portions of Yard A/B along with 15 acres of the Pine Station Nature Preserve. The work at the Pine Station Nature Preserve is being conducted under a memorandum of understanding with the Indiana Department of Natural Resources, Division of Nature Preserves.
