Connecting People with Nature

The Friends of Lac Lawrann Conservancy was established in 1994 to raise funds through memberships, donations and special events to support educational and management programs at LLC. Today the Friends of LLC provide the strategic force, leadership and volunteer power behind Lac Lawrann and its programs.

It’s nice to meet you.

Lac Lawrann Conservancy is a 137-acre nature preserve located just outside of West Bend, Wisconsin. Founded in 1985 by a group of dedicated volunteers, the conservancy is committed to preserving and enhancing the natural beauty of the area for generations to come. Visitors can enjoy hiking, bird watching, cross-country skiing, and other outdoor activities on the miles of trails that wind through the woods, prairies, and wetlands.

In addition to its recreational opportunities, the conservancy also plays an important role in conservation and education. It is home to a diverse range of plant and animal species, and serves as an important habitat for migratory birds. The Friends of Lac Lawrann Conservancy, a non-profit organization, works to promote awareness and appreciation of the natural world through educational programming, volunteer opportunities, and community events.

Over the years, the conservancy has undergone numerous improvements and updates, including the construction of the Maurin Center in 2013 and the renovation of the historic barn. It also features a photovoltaic solar panel system, which generates electricity for the Maurin Center and feeds any excess energy back into the grid. With its commitment to preservation, education, and community engagement, Lac Lawrann Conservancy is an important part of the natural landscape of West Bend and a valuable resource for visitors and residents alike.
