Shoreland Protection Initiative

Published on June 21, 2022 by in News

The Northwoods Land Trust’s (NWLT) Shoreland Protection Initiative is being promoted thanks to funding through a Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources Lake Protection Grant.

The goals of the Shoreland Protection Initiative are to educate the public about the value of protecting undeveloped shoreline along our lakes, pond and rivers in Wisconsin’s northwoods and to motivate landowners to conserve land for future generations.

Landowner outreach is currently being promoted to shoreland residents in Vilas County and northern Langlade County.

If you are an interested shoreland owner and would like to learn more about land protection options, our land trust, tax benefits and more, download our Landowner’s Conservation Guide.

If you prefer to receive the Landowner’s Conservation Guide by mail, please request one by emailing or calling (715) 479-2490.

View our Conserving Private Lands video series featuring landowners who have placed a conservation easement on their property with NWLT.


As a part of our mission, NWLT offers its permanent land protection services to qualifying shoreland owners, generally those with 500 feet or more of undeveloped shoreline on sizeable lots, throughout our seven-county service area which includes Oneida, Vilas, Forest, Florence, Iron, Price and northern Langlade Counties.
