Help protect Waukesha County's Natural Areas and Parklands

The Parkland Conservation Fund was created in 2019 to help protect, restore, and enhance greenspaces throughout the Waukesha County Park System. This stewardship fund focuses on wildlife habitat conservation, restoration and improvements to natural areas.

The dedicated fund is an opportunity to invest in local natural resources, public lands and parks for generations to come. Your financial gift will support important projects and will help preserve the diversity of ecotypes found throughout the park system.

Projects are evaluated and selected annually by the County Park System’s Ecology Team. See current projects below.

There are multiple ways to contribute to the Parkland Conservation Fund. Each donation makes a difference and will be recognized.
