Preserving the lands and waters you love!
The CWCH habitat program is a fisheries protection program. CWCH specifically focuses on deep cold water tullibee refuge lakes. Tullibee (cisco) are forage fish for popular game species. They are sensitive to changes in temperature, oxygen levels, and water quality.
Funding for our largest programs comes from the Outdoor Heritage Fund.
Other funding sources include the Midwest Glacial Lakes Partnership, Initiative Foundation, and contributions from donors like you.
We work with multiple partners to find a solution for your conservation needs.
The primary funding source NWLT uses to support landowner’s out-of-pocket costs to establish a conservation easement on their property, or facilitate an acquisition, is the Outdoor Heritage Fund.
NWLT also works in partnership with the DNR and area Soil & Water Conservation Districts to facilitate other grant-based conservation projects, through programs such as:
