Conservation Fund

Lower Wisconsin State Riverway

The Lower Wisconsin State Riverway Fund was created by Paul Brandt of Boscobel, a DNR wildlife manager for 33 years, who passed away in September 2006. Before he died, Paul created this endowed fund through the Natural Resources Foundation of Wisconsin — the Wisconsin Conservation Endowment — to permanently support the DNR's wildlife habitat restoration and management activities along the Lower Wisconsin State Riverway. Paul helped build the fund during his lifetime and left a last gift to the fund in his will. It was his hope that others who utilize the riverway and who care deeply about its health will contribute to its protection through additional gifts to the fund.

The Natural Resources Foundation of Wisconsin is a statewide nonprofit organization that creates opportunities for individuals and organizations who care about the conservation of Wisconsin's lands, waters and wildlife to:

  • deepen their understanding and appreciation of these resources;
  • support state and local conservation programs; and
  • establish conservation endowments.
