MUNCIE, Ind. — A land conservancy group is close to its fundraising goal for buying a closed Girl Scouts camp in eastern Indiana after winning a $40,000 state environmental fund grant.

The Indiana Heritage Trust project committee approved the money to help the Red-tail Conservancy land trust save Camp Munsee from logging or housing development. The heritage trust is funded by sales of state environmental license plates.

The Star Press reports the Red-tail Conservancy is $15,000 shy of raising $150,000 toward buying the 47-acre wooded property near the city of Muncie. The group has received $75,000 from a single donor and $20,000 in other contributions.

Red-tail director Barry Banks says the heritage trust committee bought into plans for the camp becoming a community nature center.
