Groundswell is a results-oriented organization.
Since 1983 we have permanently protected hundreds of special places where people can enjoy and explore the out-of-doors in south-central Wisconsin. We work with farm families to keep rich farm soils available for farming. We help elementary schools in Madison create green schoolyards where children can have fun in nature. We manage natural areas to care for wildlife and connect communities to the land. We improve access and land tenure for farmers of color and New American farmers.
We protect special places, forever.Learn More
