Join the Landmark Conservancy to support the Frank Stout Wilderness Preserve.

Get involved & support the Island. 

Conservation Easement and the benefits of membership

In order to further protect Frank Stout Wilderness Preserve (aka Big Island), the association entered into partnership with the Landmark Conservancy (West Wisconsin Land Trust at the time) to create a Conservation Easement (CE). The CE gives the island more protection and sets guidelines for use, development and protection of native as well as rare flora and fauna. As part of the partnership, property owners and visitors are encouraged to support the Conservancy with annual membership. This membership helps offset costs incurred by the Conservancy in their duties as stewards of the lake and land all across northwestern Wisconsin. At nearly 30 acres, the island has a huge impact on the overall lake health. Your membership matters. We encourage you to join today!
