BARABOO RANGE PRESERVATION
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.
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
