In addition to local resident landholders are large private corporate landholdings throughout the region. Many of these corporations hold vast amounts of property, much of it still undisturbed and ecologically valuable. Even corporate-owned “Brownfields” can be remediated back to greenways, in whole, or as part of a large redevelopment plan. Corporate stewardship has been, and will continue to be, highly important in maintaining privately owned corporate open space for conservation purposes. Many large corporations have already partnered with both public entities and private environmental groups on strategies to conserve and enhance significant amounts of their properties for greenway purposes. Through the efforts of organizations, such as the NW Indiana Forum and the Wildlife Habitat Council, new partnerships continue to be fostered toward a stronger ecological balance between conservation and industry.
