The Sycamore Land Trust recently purchased 600 acres of Brown County land to keep the wilderness area from being developed. Stewards of that land say now that the area is a preserve, there are other challenges to maintaining a forest.
This week on Noon Edition, we’ll talk with caretakers of Brown County’s and other southern Indiana forests about issues they’re facing–including drought-damaged trees and invasive species.
Noon Edition airs Friday at 12:06.
