West Wisconsin Land Trust

West Wisconsin Land Trust is dedicated to preserving western Wisconsin's natural character, saving wild and scenic places. Since 1988, West Wisconsin Land Trust has conserved over 25,000 acres of farms and natural areas throughout 18 counties in western Wisconsin.

West Wisconsin Land Trust is a regional land trust in western Wisconsin. Founded as the Wisconsin Farmland Conservancy in 1988, our original mission was to promote land conservation on family farms in Wisconsin. In 1996, we expanded our mission to include the preservation of other kinds of land: forests, wetlands, rivers and lake shores, bluffs and prairies. We assist individual landowners in developing protection plans for their property. We provide technical assistance to local community groups or smaller land trusts in completing land protection projects. We are an active member of both the statewide Gathering Waters land trust network, and the Blufflands Alliance, and the national Land Trust Alliance.

West Wisconsin Land Trust has adopted the Wisconsin Land Trust Statement of Principles, pledging to conduct our work with the highest professional standards and in accordance with the Land Trust Alliance's Standards and Practices.
