Welcome to the Roy Whistler Foundation
Thank you for coming to the Roy Whistler Foundation website. Through our endowed resources, it is the mission of the Foundation to preserve and restore wild properties and wildlife in the Central Indiana Region for generations to come.
By visiting our site, we hope to provide you with an understanding of Dr. Roy Whistler, carbohydrate chemist at Purdue University and the charge given to us. Please note the variety of projects our foundation supports and most importantly expand your knowledge of the great variety and number of wildlife interaction opportunities available to you in the surrounding 10 county area of West Lafayette, Indiana.
We invite you to learn more about the interests and initiatives of the variety of properties we have supported with our Properties Supported tab listing over 20 locations. A page for each property will provide you with an insight to the opportunities available for augmenting your knowledge of nature and geology, viewing wildlife, hiking and enjoying the great outdoors. Links provide you with additional information on the property or its stewards. The directions link on each property page provides detailed information on how to drive to the property of interest.
We hope your involvement will lead to better appreciation, understanding and/or personal stewardship of Indiana wildlife.
Our Grants tab provides appropriate organizations information on applying for support from the Roy Whistler Foundation.
