Of course we all know Lucky’s Market is crazy about conservation — last fall, our Bloomington store got in 

on the action in a big way. Their community chose Sycamore Land Trust to be one of their Bags for Change partners and when you talk about Sycamore, you’re talking about committed conservation champions!

For nearly 30 years these fabulous folks have worked tirelessly to preserve and restore the beauty, health, and diversity of southern Indiana’s natural landscape through conservation and environmental education.

Together, we raised $1,788 for Sycamore Land Trust, enough to purchase a whopping 5,200 native tree seedlings! These tiny trees will be planted at the 

wildly popular Beanblossom Bottoms Nature Preserve where they will help to restore a sensitive wetland area that flows into the White River.  

 

Each year, thousands of people bask in the natural glory of this pretty (and popular!) preserve. Over the past 20 years, Beanblossom Bottoms has grown to 600 acres of handsome hardwood wetland forest and is hometo 20 species of threatened or endangered animals and plants.

 

We’re over the moon about our partnership with Sycamore Land Trust and proud that our generous shoppers and team members helped us support their restoration efforts.
