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.
Join us for a field trip on September 20th in southeast Wisconsin and enjoy the prairie in bloom, walk our interpretive trails, tour a historic Finnish cabin and more. RSVP today!
The Nature Conservancy helped The Prairie Enthusiasts purchase a historic barn and 190 acres of native prairie and agricultural land in the Military Ridge Prairie Heritage Area.
Growing native plants is a great way to attract bees, butterflies, hummingbirds and other pollinators to your garden. Watch a fun video and get some tips on which plants they prefer.
Meadowlarks, bobolinks and other grassland birds are thriving just a short car ride from Madison in the Military Ridge Prairie Heritage Area where the Conservancy and its partners are protecting and restoring hundreds of acres of grassland. Even whooping cranes have dropped by!
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.
The Great Lakes ROCK – literally! Watch this video and see why.
