Mississippi Valley Conservancy
Mississippi Valley Conservancy is a nationally accredited land trust with a mission to permanently protect the bluffs, forests, farm land, wetlands, prairies and streams in the Driftless Area.
Serving the Wisconsin counties of Buffalo, Crawford, Grant, Jackson, La Crosse, Monroe, Richland, Trempealeau and Vernon; the Conservancy works with landowners who want to assure their land will not be developed in the future through conservation agreement. Working with partners, the Conservancy also purchases land to protect habitat for declining species and enhance biodiversity. These natural areas are open to the public to enjoy hiking, birding, fishing, hunting, and snowshoeing.
Mississippi Valley Conservancy offers monthly public hikes and works with area students in service learning through its Acorns to Oaks environmental education program.
