In addition to the stewardship of over 200 conservation easements, Landmark Conservancy is engaged with a full agenda of priority conservation projects across our
Current Project Highlights
- In the Lower Chippewa River watershed, we are working to acquire over 1,000 acres of floodplain forest, prairie, oak savanna, and diverse wetlands through collaboration with federal, state, and local partners. This area supports the largest floodplain forest in the Midwest and has the highest biodiversity of any area in our state. It provides critical habitat for an incredible array of species, including fish, birds, invertebrates, and plants.
- In the Penokee Hills, near Copper Falls State Park, we are working to create the Tyler Forks Community Forest. This 590-acre preserve will be open for all to enjoy and protect nearly three miles of streams, including the Tyler Forks River and its important tributaries flowing into the Bad River and Lake Superior.
