There are over 50 land trusts in Wisconsin working with thousands of people who are committed to preserving the places they love and value. Many landowners have a deep connection to their land and know the gifts undeveloped properties provide to their communities: clean air and water, fresh food, wildlife habitat, and sheer scenic beauty.
Our North woods region is rich in rural amenities, inland lakes, clear water streams, and Lake Superior, drawing millions of people to recreate, relax and enjoy its gifts.This creates a high demand for resort areas and second home development threatening to destroy what it is we most love about our area.
Many landowners are taking a stand to safeguard the places they love— productive farms, forests, wetlands, coastlines— for their family and for future generations.Tools for protecting your land include:
Permanent land management agreements: Conservation Easement
