Our Member Land Trusts

Nearly all Wisconsin land trusts are organizational members of Gathering Waters. We help ensure they have the tools, expertise, and resources to be strong and effective organizations. We advocate for public conservation policies, and work to ensure Wisconsin’s communities understand the benefits of supporting their land trusts.
