Conservancy has become the ecologic gem it is today. A thriving program was put in place to offer high school and college students the opportunity to intern by helping to maintain the expansive property and learn as they go. Past interns include students from:
- Williams Bay High School
- Edgewood College
- Aurora-George Williams College
…and other Wisconsin universities, colleges, and high school.
To hear from our current and past interns, check out their thoughts on their own experience at Kishwauketoe:

Kishwauketoe would not be possible without the work of hundreds of volunteers. All are welcome, any age and no special skills are needed. Here are some of the activities: take wildlife inventory, collect seeds, weed beds, and remove invasive species. We also do a considerable amount of clearing of buckthorn and other invasive shrubs and trees. We are always looking for volunteers with chainsaw skills.
Join us once a month (or more) for a rewarding experience. Check our Event Calendar for the current schedule. Help Kishwauketoe grow and develop while gaining hands on experience and first hand knowledge about the conservancy.
