Golden Sands RC&D is a community organization focused on empowering neighbors to help neighbors. We are proud to be a strong non-profit, grassroots organization that spans nine counties. We make a difference by designing and managing a variety of forestry, wildlife, agricultural and water projects, advocating for the preservation of important natural resources throughout our community, and promoting awareness and education about conservation issues for the benefit of all Central Wisconsin residents.
We rely on the generosity, passion and action of our people like you to make our vision a reality. Getting involved means having that great feeling of supporting a meaningful cause and making a difference in Central Wisconsin's future. Read on to learn more about how you can get involved.
Take Control of Your Property
Your property is your life, your future, and your responsibility. We understand the many land management challenges that come along with property ownership and are here to help you deal with them. We care about helping you understand your options, finding the answers to your questions, and providing you with the right resources.
Our current services include an on-staff management intensive grazing (M.I.G.) specialist and a Grasslands Coordinator who provides guidance to landowners to protect their land in the long-term.
Our Demonstration Forests in each county are living
examples of practicing sound forest management, and our Agroforestry Demonstration site is a
working example of what crops can be grown without ever tilling or fertilizing
the soil. Both projects are open for field trips and tours. We are also proud to coordinate with ongoing local projects around water quality objectives.
