Abstract (Document Summary)

The Studebaker name still can be seen clearly from the air, but some trees have died and some newer species have invaded the pines, county parks director Evelyn Kirkwood said. "The grant will give us a management plan to determine planting, grooming and other work that's needed," she said.

After the Studebaker Corp. ceased operation in South Bend in the 1960s, the proving grounds were sold to the Bendix Corp. In 1966, Bendix donated 175 acres and the former Studebaker Clubhouse on the property to create Bendix Woods County Park.

"We have to approach it differently, because they grow and change over time," he said. "In order to keep it saying 'Studebaker' and not die, the trees will have to be replaced over time."
