Dear Friend,

The end of the year is approaching, and we have a lot to be thankful for. The success of WCLC is built on the efforts of our wonderful members, volunteers and partners. I want to personally thank you for your commitment to the environment, and I am grateful for the passion and efforts of each and every one of you. Enjoy photos and the 25 Years of Land Protection booklet to reflect on all you have helped accomplish, not only this year, but the past 25 years.

Best wishes and happiness to you and your families as we move toward a successful and bright new year!

Thank you,

Cheryl White
Executive Director

PS You still have time to make a tax-deductible year-end donation to protect and restore land locally.

25 Years of Land Protection.
Thanks to a generous drone donation from Siepmann Realty, WCLC will take advantage of technology in order to steward our protected land and engage more people with nature.

Photographs and videos are powerful communication tools that help promote and inspire people to care about our environment. Additionally, a drone is effective technology that will help monitor larger and more remote protected properties and conduct ecological monitoring so we improve our land stewardship efforts.

Tyler Cocanour, an environmental student at UW-Milwaukee and WCLC intern, will help coordinate and assist our photography volunteers. These upcoming projects will help him get closer to his goals of becoming a nature photographer for The National Geographic.

If you are interested in volunteering to help with photography, videography or marketing and outreach contact Cheryl White at
