Mississippi Valley Conservancy is a regional, non-profit land trust based in La Crosse, Wisconsin. MVC has permanently conserved 15,595 acres of blufflands, prairies, wetlands, and streams in and around the Mississippi, Kickapoo and Wisconsin Rivers since our founding in 1997. In addition, MVC has about 2,000 acres enrolled in its Landowner Registry Program, for a total of more than 17,000 acres dedicated to conservation.
We work with private landowners and local communities on voluntary conservation projects in nine counties in the unglaciated Driftless Area of southwestern Wisconsin: Buffalo, Trempealeau, Jackson, La Crosse, Monroe, Vernon, Crawford, Richland and Grant Counties.
We use voluntary tools such as conservation agreements, land purchases, land donations, cooperative acquisitions, and a landowner registry program to conserve lands for ecological, scenic, and open space values.
MVC works cooperatively with individuals, businesses, conservation groups, local units of government, and state and federal agencies.
