Merger of West Wisconsin Land Trust and Bayfield Regional Conservancy
West Wisconsin Land Trust and the Bayfield Regional Conservancy are in the process of merging to serve a 20-county area in northwest Wisconsin
The two trusts expect the merger to improve the quality and efficiency of operations and to enhance their combined capability to conserve land. These two accredited land trusts currently have staff in Menomonie, Bayfield and Superior, Wisconsin. The Executive Director will lead five full-time staff and one part-time conservation manager. The administrative office will be located in Menomonie. The initial "charter" board of the new trust consists of the combined boards of the two merging trusts (18 members). The Executive Director will work with the charter Board of Directors to establish a long-term governing board.
