Driftless Area Land Conservancy
Amy Alstad
Director of Conservation

Amy joined Driftless Area Land Conservancy in 2017.  She received her bachelor’s degree in biology at Carleton College, and completed her PhD at UW Madison in 2017, where her research focused on long-term changes in WI prairie remnants.

Amy’s responsibilities at Driftless Area Land Conservancy include working with landowners to craft conservation easements, managing properties owned by Driftless and coordinating our monarch conservation program.

In her spare time, you’ll find her with her family, out tending their property in the Driftless where they grow food, restore native habitats and befriend monarchs.
