Wisconsin’s Land Trust Council
is an advisory body comprising land trust leaders that counsels GWC on the needs, challenges, and preferences of the Wisconsin land trust community. Read on for more info about Council members and how we serve your land trust.
For more than a decade, Wisconsin's Land Trust Council has informed Gathering Waters programs and initiatives. The leaders on the Council provide critical advising that keeps us relevant, timely, and useful as we pursue our collective mission of protecting the places that make Wisconsin special.
How does the Council work for Wisconsin land trusts?
Participation is voluntary. Council members share ideas, close feedback loops from community members, and advise on Gathering Waters programs. The Council meets annually in person at our Wisconsin land trust retreat and then periodically by teleconference.
