The Knowles-Nelson Stewardship Program is a key source of funding for land trusts and non-profit groups to protect land and water resources in Wisconsin. The Green-Rock Audubon Society is planning to use a Knowles-Nelson grant to help purchase 38 acres which is a key property next to their Gabower-Reilly Wetland. But such funding may not be possible unless the legislature in Madison, Wisconsin approves funding the program in the 2019 state budget.
We need you to contact your elected officials in Madison to let them know you support full funding of the Knowles-Nelson Stewardship Program. Gathering Waters, an umbrella organization for many Wisconsin Land Trusts has all the information you need to help support this important program. Click on this link for more information:
