BRPA is dedicated to preservation of contiguous wooded areas in Sauk County, Wisconsin. The BARABOO RANGE has been listed as "One of the Last Great Places" by The Nature Conservancy.

Education Mission

This non-profit, charitable organization cooperates with the Wisconsin Chapter of TNC in providing educational opportunities for promoting public awareness at the grass roots level of the need to preserve habitat for wildlife, including endangered species of flora and fauna and migratory bird populations.

Current Land Acquisition Goals

BRPA is actively pursuing conservation easements and the funding to implement the management of easements and land acquisition programs. In progress is an easement to protect 300 acres along 1/2 mile of the Baraboo River. Planned expansion of highway 12 from Madison to the Wisconsin Dells makes the Range a prime target for development and fracture of farmlands into small parcels into what could eventuate into a bedroom community.
