A bequest from the late Dr. Frederick O. and Alfrieda Mackel has expanded the preservation of the Cedar Creek corridor in northeast Indiana. The family has added six more acres to the Mackel Nature Preserve through the ACRES Land Trust. 

The donation also includes the Mackel house and barn, which totals 34 protected acres. The Mackel family had previously helped ACRES purchase Little Cedar Creek Wildlife Sanctuary, which includes 19 acres of floodplain forest, streams and wildflowers. ACRES owns over 1,000 acres along a 20-mile stretch of land from Auburn to the St. Joseph River near Leo-Cedarville.

ACRES members help protect 7,000 acres in the tri-state area.
