Dedicated to the Children of Tomorrow

We must protect our forests for our children, grandchildren, and children yet to be born. We must protect the forests for those who cannot speak for themselves, such as the birds, animals, fish and trees.

The Village of Williams Bay purchased this 231 acre property in 1989 and at that time, we vowed that we would not come back to the taxpayers support.  We would seek donations for all work that would be done to restore this beautiful natural area on Geneva Lake. Over the past 25 years, we have lived up to that promise.

Today Kishwauketoe is not just a simple nature conservancy, but Kishwauketoe represents a community.  In fact over the past 25 years Kishwauketoe represents what is possible when a community comes together.

Over the years, some of our accomplishments include:

  • Planting of hundreds of trees to bring back the natural forest
  • Restored sixty-five acres meadowland
  • Cleaned  a natural wetland that directly feeds into Geneva Lake, creating a spawning area for lake trout
  • Cleared and Maintained over 4 miles of trails, including a cross country ski trail
  • Construction of a four story viewing tower
  • Installed XXXX feet of boardwalk
  • Cleared invasive weed species in order to allow the growth of native flowers

Most importantly, Provided enjoyment for not only residents Williams Bay, Geneva Lake, and Walworth County, but helped assure that the waters of Geneva Lake remain clean, clear, and beautiful for all future generations
