Our Friends

Welcome to the Friends of Lac Lawrann Conservancy, a nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting and promoting the conservation of this unique natural space. Our mission is to connect people with nature by providing educational programs, inspiring environmental protection, and partnering with the City of West Bend’s Parks, Recreation & Forestry Department and other organizations.

Since our founding in 1994, we have been committed to preserving the 137-acre Lac Lawrann Conservancy and its diverse ecosystem, including wetlands, prairies, and forests. We believe that connecting with nature is essential to our well-being, and our educational programs and special events aim to foster that connection for people of all ages and backgrounds.
