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.
Oak trees are amazing! They provide shade in summer, provide lots of insects for songbirds, and turkeys love their acorns. We’re restoring oak trees in the Baraboo Hills. See what Ann Calhoun, our project director in the Hills, has to say about that.
If the lovely fall weather holds, our burn crew will be busy. See how we use controlled fire to renew prairies and restore native habitats so plants and wildlife can thrive.
Wisconsin scientists predict milder winters and hotter summers in the future. See what this could mean for our northern forests and what we’re doing to help them adapt.
Watch Conservancy staff and volunteers burn 150 acres at Barneveld Prairie.
The Penokee Range in northern Wisconsin is rich in more than just iron ore. Enjoy the beauty of this recreational hotspot and vital wildlife habitat.
When we talk about water, we talk about everything — from our own livelihood and survival to the health and stability of the natural world at large.
