Private Landowner Assistance Available

We all benefit from another set of eyes. All the better when those eyes when the help is highly skilled. Better yet when it’s free.

Eighty-two percent of Wisconsin is privately owned. Therefore, private landowners are the most important group of land stewards. Because of that, the Prairie Enthusiasts just hired a full time private landowner consultant. Dan Carter is the Landowner Services Coordinator, working on a three year grant. He is available to answer questions and give advice to private landowners trying to create or update management plans for their property.

The Prairie Enthusiasts have the experience and skills to help private land owners. They directly manage several thousand of acres of prairie and savannah across Wisconsin. In addition, TPE holds dozens of conservation easements with private landowners across Wisconsin. Finally, TPE’s chapters provide an excellent local, peer-based network of landowners. They are willing to share their knowledge and experience.

Dan is available for phone calls, email or on-site visits. He recommends land management contractors for those big jobs. Additionally, Dan can source native seeds and plants for your land. He knows the native nurseries and seed growers, what they sell and which growers carry stock suited for your management plan.

Resources

Groups Get Things Done

 

People have always worked to together in groups to get things done. Whether it is neighbor helping neighbor, professional organizations or government agencies, folks working together for common goals is how we make a difference.

The Groups section of the Conservation Digest provides links to hundreds of local, statewide and national groups that support conservation work. Landowners can find information, technical assistance, financial support and even volunteer labor to help them improve their property.
