Conservation for life

As an accredited nonprofit land trust, the mission of Mississippi Valley Conservancy is to preserve the bluffs, farmlands, wetlands, prairies and streams of Wisconsin's Driftless Area for the health and well-being of future generations.

We work with conservation-minded individuals and communities who choose to permanently protect land from development that damages wildlife habitats and farmlands. We own and manage nature preserves where we restore native habitats to enhance biodiversity and protect declining species in this time of global climate change. We also provide environmental education in efforts to enrich our local communities. 

We serve the Wisconsin counties of Buffalo, Crawford, Grant, Jackson, La Crosse, Monroe, Richland, Trempealeau, and Vernon (map).
