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.
Thanks to two very generous people, The Nature Conservancy bought more land on St. Martin Island in Lake Michigan! Which means more forest and shoreline habitat for migratory songbirds and other wildlife.
Looking for a great place to do some snowshoeing this winter? Snow-covered trails through the woods ending at lovely Mink River make this preserve a special place to spend a few hours in quiet contemplation.
We’ve been working with farmers and other partners in the Pecatonica River watershed to test a new approach to cleaning up Wisconsin’s waters, and we’re getting some great results.
Because of supporters like you, The Nature Conservancy continues to protect forests, grasslands, coral reefs and other habitats around the world for people and nature. Please take a moment to watch this video and let our scientists thank you!
See the beauty and hear the story of St. Martin Island in Lake Michigan and how first a family, then The Nature Conservancy, came to protect it. It’s on Wisconsin Life on Wisconsin Public Television.
Did you know that the Lake Michigan basin is home to the largest freshwater dune system in the world? Watch our video and see why these dunes are so important to rare plants, animals and people, and what we’re doing to protect them.
