Wisconsin Land Trust Days

Wisconsin Land Trust Days is an annual celebration of land trusts with events in July, August, and September!

Land trusts host a range of fun outdoor events including hiking, biking, and paddling, plus volunteer opportunities like trail-building and seed collection.

YETI Prize Drawing

Every year, Gathering Waters gives out YETI prizes through a random drawing for people who participate in Wisconsin Land Trust Days by either attending an event or visiting a protected property.

We give away five prizes total – one YETI cooler and four YETI tumblers. The drawing took place in early October. Drawing winners were notified by email.
