Dane County Environmental Council

Grass Field

 

Mission: To assist public and private groups in recognizing and protecting natural areas in Dane County; to assume an educational role in the protection of the environment and natural resources; and in general to promote awareness, conservation, and preservation of Dane County's natural resources.

The Dane County Environmental Council assists public and private groups in recognizing and protecting natural resources in Dane County. The Environmental Council operates two competitive grant programs for environmental projects available on a shared cost basis with non-profit organizations and local governments. In addition, the Council partners with local environmental groups to undertake volunteer projects to increase the recreational use of our natural resources. We also hope this site will serve to be a clearinghouse of environmental information in Dane County.

"In Dane County, our natural spaces, lakes, and waterways are some of the main reasons people love living here. The Dane County Environmental Council is a great resource that gives the public information they need, and helps to protect all that our home has to offer."
