Groundswell Conservancy, Inc



Groundswell Conservancy's core values are based in our dedication to protect our lands and water now for future generations. To accomplish our goals, we believe in four core values:
Conservation: Together we are champions for conservation and know how to get tangible results that benefit the community.
Collaboration: We respect and collaborate with landowners, individuals, and organizations who share our vision.
Connectedness: We believe that when people are connected to land and water they will protect it.
Commitment: We have the tenacity to overcome obstacles and follow through on our commitments.
Groundswell is a results-oriented nonprofit. Since our inception in 1983 (originally as the Dane County Natural Heritage Foundation and later as Natural Heritage Land Trust), we have protected hundreds of special places.

Mission Statement

The mission of Groundswell Conservancy is to protect special places, forever, in Dane County, Wisconsin and the surrounding area.
Our vision is a world filled with green places where communities thrive.

Program Details

Groundswell works in several areas of the Dane County region. Each landscape has its own reasons about why it is important to protect. From the high quality soils and great fishing of the Black Earth Creek valley to the noteworthy bird habitat and accessible outdoor classroom of Patrick Marsh, every place has its own conservation story.
