send a Knowles-nelson postcard


Your voice matters in shaping Wisconsin’s natural legacy.  Tangible, personal messages are some of the best ways to show legislators how Wisconsin’s beautiful places enrich our lives and why it’s crucial to support environmental conservation. Knowles-Nelson Stewardship grants fund the purchase of public lands, trail development, new boating facilities, campgrounds, and more.

Together, our stories show why protecting our outdoors matters. Share yours now!

Upload a photo of yourself enjoying your favorite place in Wisconsin, or a picture of your favorite view, and tell us where the photo was taken.

Write a brief, positive message of support for land and water conservation, along with your name and address.

That’s it! We’ll take it from here. We’ll print real postcards with your photo & message and mail them to your state representatives and Governor Evers when they’ll have the most impact: when legislators debate the state budget; when Knowles-Nelson is in the news; or when we want to generate positive attention for the program.
