Our Mission

Since 1986, our Foundation has provided sustainable funding for Wisconsin’s most imperiled species and public lands, while helping citizens connect with our state's unique natural places.

With your help, we have provided more than $6.45 million to conservation efforts across Wisconsin.

We also created the Wisconsin Conservation Endowment, which currently includes more than 70 funds and more than $5 million in assets that permanently support specific lands, programs, and species.
