The Sandra Dee Bedenkop Spring Run Conservation Area land is within the Classified Forest and Wild lands Program under the Indiana Department of Natural Resources (IDNR), Division of Forestry, and has been under that Program for many years. By definition: “The land is managed for timber production, wildlife habitat, and the protection of watersheds, while conserving other natural resources and values”; however, the PCC IWLA land is not managed for timber production, only for wildlife habitat and watershed protection without any economic uses. The parcel is primarily wetland.
