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.
The coastal wetlands at the Chiwaukee Prairie Illinois Beach Lake Plain, which the Conservancy has helped protect for the past 50 years, have been designated a Wetland of International Importance.
Asters, goldenrod, Indian grass and prairie dropseed. These are a few of the Wisconsin prairie grasses and wildflowers that our volunteers are collecting this fall for use in future prairie restorations.
Our work with farmers in southwest Wisconsin to put conservation practices on those fields and pastures most at risk of losing nutrients to rivers and streams is paying off in cleaner water! See how we all benefit.
