Waukesha County Land Conservancy

Protecting environmentally significant lands in Waukesha County

WCLC is nonprofit conservation organization funded through memberships and donations. 

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.
With your help we, we can purchase another important property in Waukesha County.
       We are working to acquire a 60-acre critical species habitat next to the 50-acre Summit Bog property we already own.  This important property called the Genesee Lake Road Tamarack Preserve is in the Village of Summit and is part of the Genesee Lake Road Bog. Rare “Showy Lady’s Slipper”, a tamarack swamp, and birds like the Woodcock, Blue-Winged Warbler, and Cerulean Warbler reside on the property.
