Get Involved with the GLC​

Since 1995, our donors have helped preserve and protect over 700 acres of prairies, forests, and wetlands, including more than 18,000 feet of shoreland on Green Lake and its tributaries. You can support in multiple ways such as volunteer work, donating land to the conservancy, monetary donations or attending GLC events. With your support, you can help the Green Lake Conservancy preserve and protect Green Lake’s special places and bring awareness to protecting the environment.

Volunteer Your Time

Preserving the special places around Green Lake is no easy task, so we are always in need of volunteers to help maintain them. Buckthorn removal, prescribed burns, trail marking, boardwalk/bridge repair and ??? are just a few of the ways our volunteers lend a hand. Please contact us if you are interested in sharing your time and talents with us.

Attend Green Team Events

Each year, volunteers and staff from The Green Lake Conservancy, Green Lake Association, Green Lake Sanitary District and Green Lake School District plan a series of fun and educational events for the community to enjoy together. This collaboration is known as the Green Team!

The Green Team’s mission is to get families, community members and visitors to explore the special and often unknown, natural and historical features of the Green Lake area.

From water-based activities, like paddling on the lake and its tributaries, to land-based events at Green Lake Conservancy sites and local farms, there’s an event to fit every explorer.

Make a Donation

As an all-volunteer, non-profit Land Trust, serving the Green Lake area, we rely on private donations in order to be able to provide land conservation services. With your help, we can continue to protect these Special Places and bring awareness to the environment together. There are many wasys that you can donate–one-time or annual monetary donations, donations of stocks or securities, including GLC in your estate plans or donations in honor or memory of another individual.

Please consider making a donation today. We appreciate your support.

Donate or Conserve Your Land

Across America, thousands of people are determined to conserve the places they value. Landowners have a deep connection to their land and know the gifts undeveloped properties provide their communities: clean air and water, fresh food, wildlife habitat, and sheer scenic beauty.

All-too-often these special places disappear forever because of development. Every day, over 5,000 acres of land are developed in the U.S. Many landowners are taking a stand to safeguard the places they love— productive farms, ranch land, forests, wetlands, coastlines— for their family and for future generations

The state of Wisconsin has facilitated private land stewardship by legislation that helps landowners maintain the right to enjoy what is special about their property while decreasing their tax burden and allowing them to realize some financial gain from their good stewardship.
