Thanks to the generous donation of land made by Full Circle Farm, LLC, on December 29, 2017 we permanently protected 31 acres of wetland north of Stoughton. This property is adjacent to an 82-acre wetland area owned by the DNR with 2,500 feet of shoreline on the east side of the Yahara River.
Wetlands are increasingly endangered in Wisconsin. According to Katie Beilfuss, Outreach Programs Director at Wisconsin Wetlands Association, “wetlands provide critical natural benefits for our communities, including protection from flooding, improving water quality, and providing critical habitat for wildlife. With 50% of Wisconsin’s wetlands already gone, and efforts underway to roll back state and federal wetland protections, it’s more important than ever to protect wetlands through local and private actions like this one.”
Our thanks to Full Circle Farm, LLC for their generosity and to the continued backing of Groundswell Conservancy supporters – together we make these land conservation successes possible.
