Groundswell’s highest priority is the health and well-being of our staff, volunteers, and community during the rapidly evolving health concern of the Coronavirus/COVID-19.

We are monitoring the Coronavirus/COVID-19 pandemic and using information provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Wisconsin Department of Health Services, and Safer-At-Home order issued by Governor Evers to inform and develop policies to protect our community and help prevent the spread of the virus.

Staff Schedules and Availability to the Public

Our office in Madison is closed, as Groundswell staff is working from home. During this time we remain committed to our mission, to protect special places forever. We are still available to you via email, phone, zoom conferencing, and social media (FacebookInstagram). Any message left on the office phone (608-258-9797) will be forwarded to staff at home automatically. They will return your call. View a staff list here.

Outdoor volunteering is cancelled for the month of March and April. Please check our Outdoor Volunteering page for future updates or to be added to that email list.

We thank you for your trust, understanding and patience. In the meantime, we are as passionate as ever about what we can accomplish together.
