Mississippi Valley Conservancy Receives $400 Grant

Posted:

LA CROSSE, Wisconsin (WXOW)  The Mississippi Valley Conservancy is receiving some financial help from a local group.

The Crawford County Community Fund is providing a $400 grant.  They say it recognizes the MVC's work supporting eco-tourism.

The MVC executive director says the grant supports work on the 84-acre Kickapoo Bottoms Preserve.  With the help of a grant from the Knowles-Nelson Stewardship Program, the MVC purchased that property in 2011.

Since forming in 1997, the Conservancy has permanently protected almost 16,000 acres of land in southwestern Wisconsin.
