About Us

Preserving and restoring a diverse landscape and connecting people to the land.

Faville Grove Sanctuary encompasses nearly 850 acres of land that is rich in environmental and cultural history. Aldo Leopold began working here in the 1930's and described Faville Grove Prairie as, "...one of the largest and best remnants of unplowed, ungrazed prairie sod left in the State." Only a portion of that prairie exists today, but with the help of Madison Audubon and many volunteers we continue Leopold's mission to reconnect people to the land and restore the vitality to this once healthy ecosystem.
