What is the Conservancy:

WWOA fernsThe Geneva Lake Conservancy is a 501(c)(3) not-for profit organization supported entirely by contributions from persons who believe in the importance of protecting the nature and history of Walworth County, Wisconsin. The county is home to glacial lakes, formed over 10,000 years ago, rich agricultural lands, environmental corridors, gently rolling scenic vistas, and a legacy of culture and history that are threatened by urban sprawl and short-sighted developmental greed. The Conservancy is dedicated to the preservation of open space, ecology and history, and directs its efforts toward shaping zoning policies and decisions, public and private land conservation, and environmental education.
