Our Member Land Trusts

Nearly all Wisconsin land trusts are organizational members of Gathering Waters. We help them build capacity so they can forever protect Wisconsin's special places. Member organizations have acces to Gathering Waters services including the Land Trust Excellence & Advancement Program, among other helpful members benefits.

Our Current Land Trust Members

At the request of Wisconsin land trusts, we're committed to making membership in Gathering Waters matter. We have developed our membership parameters based on input we have solicited from land trust leaders and our partners.  Our aim is to support and strengthen land trusts organizationally and the requirement to attest to the elements is meant as framework from which to establish and sustain a healthy land trust community.

All land trust members are non-profits in good standing, have adopted the Wisconsin Land Trust Statement of Principles and have committed to pursuing sound operations defined by Land Trust Standards and Practices.

**Please be aware that Gathering Waters is relying on the land trust to truthfully and accurately make the attestation.  Gathering Waters is not able to verify the accuracy of the attestation, nor necessarily examine the records or files of the land trust.  Therefore, third parties seeking to engage the land trust in a business or other relationship are advised to do their own analysis based on the terms of the proposed relationship.
