Conservation for life

As an accredited nonprofit land trust, the mission of Mississippi Valley Conservancy is to conserve native habitats and farmlands for the health and well-being of Wisconsin's Driftless Area.

We work with conservation-minded individuals and communities who choose to permanently protect land from development that damages wildlife habitats and farmlands. We own and manage nature preserves where we restore prairies, savannas, and woodlands to protect clean water, enhance biodiversity, and protect declining species in this time of global climate change. We also provide environmental learning experiences to enrich our local communities by nurturing love of nature.

We serve the Wisconsin counties of Buffalo, Crawford, Grant, Jackson, La Crosse, Monroe, Richland, Trempealeau, and Vernon (map).
