Two of Indiana's most prominent environmental groups are joining forces.

The Hoosier Environmental Council and the Valparaiso-based Legal Environmental Aid Foundation say they're merging in hopes of advancing environmental issues in Indiana.

Under the merger, the Legal Environmental Aid Foundation's executive director, Kim Ferraro, will become water and agriculture policy director for the Indianapolis-based Hoosier Environmental Council. The two groups said their merger will unite the council's policy education and advocacy strengths with the legal and technical assistance strengths of Ferraro's group.

Ferraro and Hoosier Environmental Council executive director Jesse Kharbanda said in a joint statement that they "look forward to our future working together as one organization with a greater breadth of tools to take on threats posed to our air, land, and water."
