Wisconsin’s land is extraordinary. We can hunt, hike, fish, paddle, explore rugged terrain, and witness jaw-dropping vistas. Local parks, bikepaths, beaches, and open space create more livable communities. The land is bountiful, with its rich soil and abundant wildlife. Our public lands are an economic engine, contributing to a $19 billion outdoor recreation industry. We must keep these places public, enhance and expand access to our open spaces, and properly manage our forests, wetlands, and soil.
