Good news that on December 28, 2012 we permanently protected the largest remaining undeveloped land along Lake Waubesa. Our 39-acre purchase in the Waubesa Wetlands State Natural Area protects wetlands, uplands, and roughly 1,200 feet of shoreline on the lake. Click here for map.

The property will be transferred to Dane County for long-term management and will be open immediately to the public for hiking, hunting, and other outdoor recreational activities.

Funding for this project came from the Knowles-Nelson Stewardship Program, Dane County Conservation Fund, Town of Dunn, Lake Waubesa Conservation Association, and the members of Groundswell.

2012 has been a successful year for us. We have completed 10 projects resulting in nearly 1,000 acres of permanent land protection in and around Dane County. Thank you to everyone who has supported this important work over the last year.
