Knowles-Nelson Stewardship Fund

The Waukesha County Land Conservancy urges you to contact your state senator and representative regarding the moratorium on the Knowles-Nelson Stewardship Fund. In the proposed Wisconsin State budget, the Knowles-Nelson Stewardship fund would be eliminated for thirteen years. Land Trusts, municipalities and the Department of Natural Resources have protected thousands of acres of wildlife habitat, prairies, woodlands and wetlands with the help of the Stewardship Fund. Raising private funds to match these Stewardship Grants, land trusts alone have protected thousands of acres since this bipartisan-supported Knowles-Nelson Fund was created.

We need to tell our legislators that these cuts and changes will be detrimental to the state‚Äôs economy and to our quality of life in the long term.

Please write or call your state senator and representative. A possible template follows. You can use the following link to find the name and email address of your state senator and assemblyman copy this link and paste it into your browser  http://maps.legis.wisconsin.gov/#

The continuation of the Knowles-Nelson Stewardship program is very important to the Waukesha County Land Conservancy's ability to preserve additional lands for environmental protection and public use including hunting, hiking, bird watching and scenic beauty. If you want more lands available for these uses please contact your state senator or assemblyman to let them know this is important to you.
