Established 1992

Waukesha County Land Conservancy

Protecting and caring for environmentally significant land
and water in Waukesha County for future generations.

About Us

Since 1992, The Waukesha County Land Conservancy has worked quietly and efficiently at fulfilling its mission of protecting environmentally significant lands in Waukesha County. Nearly 2,900 acres of primary environmental corridor, undisturbed shoreline, pristine floating bog, uplands, woodlands and wetlands are preserved for generations to come.


The Waukesha County Land Conservancy is a land trust that is not for profit, tax-exempt, & all volunteer organization funded through memberships and other donations.


With the assistance of professional biologists, naturalists and other land professionals, the Waukesha Land Conservancy is seeking to protect the most environmentally significant remaining natural areas for the public benefit. When used in this way, the term "trust" means the resource is made permanently safe against harmful uses.


Preservation can be accomplished in several ways:


  • Establishing conservation easements
  • Accepting land donations
  • Purchasing land
  • Working with public or private entities to protect environmentally sensitive sites.

Thanks to the many individuals, corporations and foundations whose donations have helped us fulfill our mission.  There is still land that needs to be preserved and your continued support is essential.
