Who we are
We believe that protecting the natural world and engaging people in its vast wonder is one of the most important gifts that we can pass on to our children and the generations that follow. Driftless Area Land Conservancy is building a better world by conserving healthy and diverse habitats, clean waters, productive and sustainable working lands, and scenic open spaces. We strive to educate, engage and inspire people and facilitate their connection to the land and to each other. Positive, fulfilling experiences in nature are the key to cultivating the next generation of Driftless conservationists. Together, through focused land protection and management and by providing opportunities for people to engage with and enjoy the outdoors, we can help protect and improve the Driftless Area for everyone, forever.
Driftless Area Land Conservancy's purpose is to maintain and enhance the health, diversity and beauty of Southwest Wisconsin's natural and agricultural landscape through permanent land protection and restoration, and improve people's lives by connecting them to the land and to each other.
