On September 5, 2014, we completed negotiations with a conservation-minded landowner family to permanently protect part
of the original John Muir family farm located seven miles south of Montello in Marquette County in central Wisconsin.
This acquisition includes 38 acres of the land settled by John’s father Daniel in the spring of 1849 when Daniel and his
son John and daughter Sarah emigrated from Scotland. We need your help to ensure a healthy future for this land.
Your donation will pay for transaction costs, construction of a memorial wall and kiosk, and restoration of the natural
wildlife habitat of the property and the surrounding conservation lands. To learn more about this wonderful opportunity,

By donating online some of your gift goes to the credit card company. Would you like to add the fee amount to ensure
goes to Groundswell?
