About Mississippi Valley Conservancy

Here at Mississippi Valley Conservancy we are on a mission to conserve native habitats and farmlands in the Driftless Area for the health and well-being of current and future generations. In this time of rapid climate change, our services help landowners and communities protect their land from development and restore resilience and biodiversity to the land.

We work with landowners who choose to permanently protect their private land through conservation easements. We also own and manage public nature preserves with a goal of restoring native habitats to enhance biodiversity and protect declining species in this time of global climate change. Through the efforts of our colleagues and volunteers we work to restore native habitat by removing invasive species, conducting prescribed burns, planting native species, and other best practices of habitat restoration.
