Gathering Waters Land Trust Council

is an advisory body comprising land trust leaders that counsels Gathering Waters on the needs, challenges, and preferences of the Wisconsin land trust community. Read on for more info about Council members and how we serve your land trust.

For more than a decade, the Land Trust Council has informed Gathering Waters programs and initiatives. The leaders on the Council provide critical advice that keeps us relevant, timely, and useful as we pursue our collective mission of protecting the places that make Wisconsin special.

How does the Council work for Wisconsin land trusts?

The Council assists with the development of the Wisconsin Land Trust Statement of Principles, the Land Trust Excellence & Advancement Program, and our organizational strategic plan.

Participation is voluntary. Council members share ideas, close feedback loops from community members, and advise on Gathering Waters programs. The Council meets annually in person and periodically by teleconference.

Who's on the Council?

We strive to recruit members who represent the diversity of land trusts statewide. Feel free to communicate with your nearest representative on issues that affect your land trust:
