Good news that on December 8th we completed a permanent conservation easement on 100 acres of prime farmland as part of our long-standing partnership with the Town of Dunn. The farmland is part of a more than 2000-acre contiguous block of private and public conservation lands just 4 miles from the capitol.

With this project completed, Groundswell and Town of Dunn will have permanently protected more than 3,000 acres of farmland, forests, and wetlands on the edge of Madison.

Financial assistance to purchase the permanent conservation easement came from the residents of the Town of Dunn and the Natural Resource Conservation Service’s Agricultural Conservation Easement Program. Our thanks goes to the landowner that sold the easement and to you and the many other supporters of Groundswell who make projects like these possible.
