You Can Leave a Legacy of Protected Lands and Waters

Conservation starts with people. One person who is inspired by the beauty of a special place to take action to protect it can leave a legacy of land and water for nature and people.

We have created a Legacy Trail at beautiful Lulu Lake Preserve in southeast Wisconsin to recognize the visionary people who are planning to make a difference for nature in Wisconsin.

If you’ve already included the Conservancy in your estate plans or plan to do so by February 28, 2017, please let us know today. We’ll welcome you to the Legacy Club and add your name to the Legacy Trail sign in recognition of your lasting commitment to the lands and waters you love.

Some of our nation’s conservation giants were inspired by the Wisconsin landscape, people like Aldo Leopold, John Muir and Gaylord Nelson. And the beautiful landscapes that stirred them have also inspired generations of Wisconsin citizens to love, protect and care for precious land and water.

For more than 50 years, visionary people have partnered with The Nature Conservancy to leave a legacy of protected lands and waters in some of Wisconsin’s and the world’s most beautiful and beloved places:

  • A small group of individuals expressed their love for the Baraboo Hills through generous estate gifts to The Nature Conservancy that grew to create a dedicated source of funds. Over the years, the Baraboo Hills Conservation Fund has helped protect more than 5,000 acres, restored forests and provided habitat for wildlife and recreation opportunities for people.
  • A couple in southeast Wisconsin whose dream was to create a nature sanctuary entrusted their estate and their legacy to The Nature Conservancy. Today, the Newell and Ann Meyer Nature Preserve is a place where wildlife thrive and people enjoy the beauty of nature.

You can make a difference for the places you love and in the lives of those who follow you. With careful planning, you can leave a legacy of clean water, towering forests and fertile wetlands.

What will your legacy be? If nature is a part of it, please contact us today. Together we can save the places that matter most to you.
