Support WGF through Book Sales and Apparel

Combining richly detailed text with beautiful photographs and maps, The Ecological Landscapes of Wisconsin is a must-have book for conservationists and all who love Wisconsin's lands and waters.

Wisconsin's Green Fire has made the book available in print again as a paperback series via Amazon. 

A portion of the purchase proceeds will benefit Wisconsin's Green Fire.

Let everyone know that you are one of the Voices for Conservation! By wearing a piece of clothing with the Wisconsin’s Green Fire logo on it, you can stimulate discussion about WGF and the great work we do. They also make great gifts!

Our logo wear is handled by an independent on-line business called Queensboro. WGF receives a small royalty fee with each purchase.

Creating Your Conservation Legacy through Planned Giving to Wisconsin's Green Fire 

In addition to making annual gifts, a growing number of our supporters contribute to Wisconsin’s Green Fire through both planned giving during their lifetime and through gifts via bequests defined in their wills or estate plans. Planned giving can be an important estate planning tool that brings satisfaction, as well as tax benefits for you and your family.

See our 2022 publication "Leave a Wisconsin Conservation Legacy for the Generations Who Follow" for details on ways to support WGF during your lifetime and beyond.

Contact Executive Director Meleesa Johnson, mjohnson@wigreenfire.org, to discuss opportunities for planned giving.
