The Bayfield Regional Conservancy believes in the orderly growth of the region with a balance between conservation and development.

The BRC aims to protect, preserve and acquire land for the purpose of conservation and the benefit of present and future generations.

The RC is. dedicated to the preservation of scenic, ecologically sensitive, recreational, open space, historic and agricultural land in the Bayfield Region.

The BRC's main activity will be protecting land. This includes establishing conservation easements or other land protection measures and long term monitoring of protected properties.

The BRC will focus on the area of the Bayfield Region identified through land use planning by the county, town, tribal and city authorities, determined to be of prime importance to the region.

The BRC will attempt to respond to landowners' requests regarding protection of their land. Any project undertaken must be for the public benefit, not simply the benefit of a particular land owner.

The BRC will combine real estate expertise with philanthropy and volunteerism to reduce the costs of land protection.

The BRC will inform land owners, prospects, and others about its existence and gain public support through membership solicitation and education.

The BRC will pursue partnerships where appropriate and shares the Lake Superior Binational Forum vision for Lake Superior. "As citizens of Lake Superior, we believe that water is life and the quality of water determines the quality of life."

The BRC will maintain the highest ethical standards at all times.

The BRC is a private, nonprofit tax exempt organization which prohibits our involvement in political campaigns and limits the amount of lobbying in which we might legally engage.


Our logo was designed by Cherrie Routhier. It was derived from Anishinaabeg (Ojibwa) pictographs of the pre-European contact period. The picture-writing system was in wide spread use in the Great Lakes area. Representations: Four directions, Spirits over Kitchi Gami (Great Lake, Superior) with many islands and rivers. Great Spirits under water, bird, and fish totems and a healing spirit bear.
