Like the sharp vision of a raptor, Mississippi Valley Conservancy focuses its conservation efforts on permanently protecting the scenic blufflands of the Upper Mississippi River Valley--habitat for the beautiful and swift peregrine falcon and the majestic bald eagle.
The Conservancy has saved more than 14,000 precious acres of critical raptor habitat in North America's major migratory flyway from destruction. MVC is the single most active force today in protecting the rugged bluffs of the Upper Mississippi River Valley.
Sadly, development pressure and mining are fragmenting and destroying habitat at an alarming rate. In the short span between 1990 and 2002, a whopping 888,000 acres of the Wisconsin countryside was chopped up and paved over. In 2012, MVC partnered with TNC to save a peregrine falcon nesting site from becoming an ugly and lifeless frac sand mine. You have the power to make a real and substantial difference in rescuing properties like that one!
