Forty-five minutes southwest of Oxford, Ohio, in southeastern Indiana’s Franklin County, lies the Salt Creek Nature Sanctuary. Formerly a hill farm, the land has not been cultivated since Don and Patricia Kaufman purchased it in 1983. In the ensuing decades, the old farm has reverted to a wild, natural state, and the Sanctuary is now a 280-acre tapestry of mature woodlands and healthy fields. A pond, small creeks, and numerous vernal pools grace its gently rolling hills, sheltered valleys, and rugged ravines.The Salt Creek Nature Sanctuary Endowment provides support for the maintenance and upkeep of the Salt Creek Nature Sanctuary.
The David & Marjorie Barrett Family Operations Endowment was established in 2003 to provide support for the operations of the Franklin County Community Foundation.
