The Nature Conservancy is working across Wisconsin to protect our state’s water, forests and grasslands. Conservation starts with people. One person—inspired by a special place or memory—can take action to leave a natural legacy for plants, animals and people.
Our Mink River Preserve provides critical habitat to the rare Hine’s emerald dragonfly, a species that survives by playing nice with the enemy.
Enjoy bicycling and bird-watching in the Military Ridge area where we’re working with partners to protect native prairie and oak savanna for bobolinks, meadowlarks, and other grassland birds and wildlife.
Is your favorite swimming, canoeing, boating lake turning into a weedy mess? See how we’re tackling Eurasian water-milfoil, an aquatic invasive species, that’s causing problems at Lulu Lake Preserve.
During the heat of the summer, conserving water is more important than ever, and rain gardens can help. Watch our fun, fast video about how to build a rain garden in just two days and get some tips to get you started.
