The Geneva Lake Conservancy is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization dedicated to the preservation of environmentally sensitive lands, open space and the unique character and quality of life of Walworth County, Wisconsin. Working with landowners, and government officials, the Conservancy advocates private and public land use and management decisions that assure responsible growth and protection of natural and historic resources.
The earliest “Conservation Easement” of its kind dates back to 1891. The first private land trust, the Trustees of Reservations in Massachusetts, was formed to purchase and maintain public parkways, designed by landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted, throughout the city of Boston.
