Since 1994, Gathering Waters has helped people protect the land they love.

In the early years we offered direct assistance with easements. But as the land trust community grew, Gathering Waters became a resource organizatoin strengthening the land trusts and conservancies in Wisconsin. 

No matter which role we played, Gathering Waters, we have witnessed some amazing stories about people successfully protecting the places they love throughout Wisconsin. 

Because of their commitment, these people are the heroes of land conservation. They chose to make a difference for the future.
