Bayfield County Forest Needs Our Help

Together, we can help Bayfield County Forest’s 2013 planting effort. The need is great to establish tree biodiversity across several northern Wisconsin forest areas. With our help, four different species of trees can help create connectivity with adjacent forest areas, re-establishing native forest ecosystems lost over the last 100 years due to insect and storm devastation. These trees will also create new habitat for bird species such as the sharp tailed grouse and federally endangered Kirtland’s warbler.


You can help repair damage to wildlife habitats. Read about our efforts in each and restore the awe-inspiring beauty of our state and national forests.
