Protect Your Own Land
The state of Wisconsin has recognized that individual communities do an excellent job of identifying places worthy of protection.
Additionally, the state 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.
