Cedar Lakes Conservation Foundation
Cedar Lakes Conservation Foundation, Inc. was founded in 1974 and is the oldest land trust of its kind in the State of Wisconsin.  Its volunteer leadership was instrumental to the formation of Gathering Waters Conservancy and using the land trust model as an important framework to coordinate and support statewide land conservation efforts.  It is fair to say that many of our State’s land trusts were propagated from the seeds of land conservation practice planted and cultivated by CLCF in Wisconsin.

Activities of CLCF continue to make significant contributions to the preservation and protection of fragile wetlands, woodlands and natural areas in Washington County – one of the most rapidly developing areas in the State.  Cumulatively, approximately 2500 acres of pristine land has been permanently protected, creating a lasting legacy of natural beauty that will remain undeveloped for the benefit of future generations.  And, it’s not just any land.  CLCF’s area of concentration includes the headwaters and watersheds of Gilbert Lake, Big Cedar Lake, Little Cedar Lake, and Cedar Creek.  These watersheds drain into the Milwaukee River and eventually reach Lake Michigan.
