Wisconsin Land Conservancy Partners
Since 1992, The Waukesha County Land Conservancy has worked quietly and efficiently at fulfilling its mission of protecting environmentally significant lands in Waukesha County. Over 2,700 acres of primary environmental corridor, undisturbed shoreline, pristine floating bog, uplands, woodlands and wetlands are preserved for generations to come.
The mission of the River Revitalization Foundation is to establish a parkway for public access, walkways, recreation and education, bordering the Milwaukee, Menomonee and Kinnickinnic Rivers; to use the rivers to revitalize surrounding neighborhoods; and to improve water quality.
From the past to the future, we are committed to the return of this vital natural resource for all as Milwaukee's urban rivers land trust.
Preserving the water resources, natural areas, and working lands of Ozaukee and Washington Counties.
Our efforts improve the water quality of our lakes, streams, rivers, and wetlands, protect and enhance wildlife habitat, and preserve the scenic and open spaces that define our rural landscape. By creating strong conservation relationships we promote public awareness of the benefits of land preservation, and provide opportunities for nature-based recreation, improving the quality of life in our communities.
Tall Pines Conservancy's mission is to preserve our rural heritage by protecting remaining farmland, water resources, natural areas and open spaces adjacent to and impacting Northwestern Waukesha County. To date, we have permanently protected approximately 1500 acres of land through conservation agreements, and of that is 900 acres of productive farmland. We are currently working on the Oconomowoc River Watershed Protection Program to lower phosphorus in the watershed through best land management practices and land protection.
Glacial Lakes Conservancy envisions a legacy of permanently protected land that protects our surface water, scenic beauty of open spaces, agricultural sustainability and ultimately, our quality of life. We treasure the land and find satisfaction in saving it for future generations.
