For over a decade, The Waukesha County Land Conservancy has worked quietly and efficiently at fulfilling its mission of protecting environmentally significant lands in Waukesha County. Over 2100 acres of primary environmental corridor, undisturbed shoreline, pristine floating bog, uplands, woodlands and wetlands are preserved for generations to come.

Preserving these unique spaces for our children and grandchildren means that someday they, too, can hear the one-of-a-kind honking that means a sandhill crane is flying overhead….see a pasque flower poking its delicate petals from beneath the snow….trail a hand in the cold, clear water of the Mukwonago River….watch great blue herons feeding their young….glimpse a painted turtle slipping off a log….smell the sharp earthiness of a woodland emerging from the grip of winter….listen to the whispers of falling leaves….
