Donate to the Lakeshore Nature Preserve

White oak tree

While UW-Madison's operating budget supports the Lakeshore Nature Preserve administrative expenses, private funds support more than 35 percent of the Preserve’s annual budget.

Private gifts are vital to the Preserve's ongoing success and directly support:

  • Ecological restoration efforts including invasive plant control, prescribed fires, seeds, and plants
  • Outreach efforts including signage, displays and audio trail tour
  • Volunteer programs
  • Maintenance equipment and supplies
  • Capitol projects to enhance the Preserve

And much, much more!
