About Us

We’re on a mission

The mission of Mississippi Valley Conservancy is to conserve native habitats and farmlands in the Driftless Area for the health and well-being of current and future generations.

In this time of rapid climate change, we continue our service to help landowners and communities protect their land from development and restore its resilience and biodiversity.

We at Mississippi Valley Conservancy fulfill our mission in three ways:

We use voluntary tools such as conservation easements and land acquisitions to protect lands for their ecology, scenic beauty, outdoor recreation potential and agricultural use. We also assist landowners by connecting them with available funding and resources for land management. Our staff and volunteers restore native habitat by removing invasive species, conducting prescribed burns, planting native species, and other best practices of habitat restoration.
