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.
