From the Apostle Islands in Lake Superior to the deep river valleys of the Driftless region, from your family cabin up north to the deer stand on your grandparent’s farm, Wisconsin is a place you love deeply for all its beauty and abundance. Family memories are made from summers at the lake, canoeing on the Wisconsin River, and camping in the north woods.
But that Wisconsin beauty and your family’s health face many threats. Frac sand mining devastates the rolling hills of western Wisconsin and makes the air unsafe to breathe. Factory farms pollute trout streams and contaminate drinking water. Climate change threatens our forests and Great Lakes. And, those same polluting special interests are working overtime to convince decision makers in Madison to weaken protections even further – increasing the threats to your family and the places you love.
By bringing people together, bridging the gap between the State Capitol and conservationists around the state, engaging citizens in our democracy, and sharing our policy-making expertise and knowledge with hundreds of local conservation organizations and tens of thousands of individuals, Wisconsin League of Conservation Voters Institute is making sure your conservation values are heard by decision makers.
Our track record speaks for itself. From passing the Strong Great Lakes Compact to protecting the Stewardship Program, from staving off attacks on our rivers and lakes to keeping plastic microbeads out of our waters, Wisconsin League of Conservation Voters Institute has led the way, bringing people together to protect the Wisconsin you love.
We couldn’t do it without you. Thank you for all you do to protect Wisconsin for future generations.
