Is Conservancy Significant?

The Kishwauketoe wetland in Williams Bay plays an important ecological, environmental, and social role.  It moderates flood flow, improves water quality, recharges groundwater, and provides a diversity of plants and animals.

This area is the largest intact wetland remaining in the watershed of Geneva Lake. Two large Geneva Lake tributary streams, Harris and Southwick, meander through the property, and are cleansed by the actions of the wetland.   Each year, 565,000,000 gallongs of water run through Kishwauketoe from these creeks.

Kishwauketoe is a wonderful pristine natural habitat and provides a safe and beautiful dimension to recreation in the Geneva Lake area.  Opportunities for enjoying the benefits of the Conservancy are apparent during all four seasons.
