The Wesselman Nature Society is an organization which stands to protect the 200-acre tract in Evansville that is formally known as the Wesselman Woods Nature Preserve. This non-profit organization was founded in 1972, and since then has acquired two more preserves to protect from environmental harm: the Howell Wetlands, and the Canoe Evansville.
