Our Mission

To preserve lands that protect our waters, landscapes, and natural habitats for this, and future, generations.

About Us

Northeast Wisconsin Land Trust is a non-profit, member-supported organization. We are northeast Wisconsin's only regional land trust, and work in 12 counties to preserve our region's lands, waters, and wildlife. Since our founding in 1996, we have preserved more than 6,000 acres of natural land, including forests, wetlands, and miles of shoreline.

Preserve Hunting Rules

NEWLT recognizes hunting as an important wildlife management tool. The excise tax dollars generated from the sale of guns, ammunition, and outdoor equipment has benefited natural habitats for all wildlife species. Hunters play an important role as conservation partners with NEWLT through aiding in controlling the populations of white-tailed deer and turkeys.

 

Northeast Wisconsin Land Trust Earns National Recognition

In July 2017, Northeast Wisconsin Land Trust joined a network of 389 accredited land trusts nationally that have demonstrated their commitment to professional excellence and to maintaining the public’s trust in their work.

Accreditation demonstrates NEWLT’s commitment to permanent land conservation in northeast Wisconsin.

- Accredited land trusts now steward nearly 80% of conservation lands and easements held by all land trusts.

- Accredited land trusts protected five times more land from 2010 to 2015 than land trusts that were not yet accredited.

- Accredited land trusts have stronger internal systems and greater resources to steward their conservation lands forever.

- As a result of these standards, the public’s trust in land conservation has increased--helping to win support for federal, state, and local conservation funding measures.
