What We Protect

Groundswell works in several areas of the Dane County region and each landscape has its own reasons about why it is important to protect. From the high quality soils and great fishing of the Black Earth Creek valley to the noteworthy bird habitat and accessible outdoor classroom of Patrick Marsh, every place has its own story.
