Since 1981, the Friends of MacKenzie have relied on a community of members and donors to fulfill our mission to encourage, perpetuate and promote the work of natural resources and conservation education in Wisconsin, and to develop new concepts leading to expansion of the MacKenzie Center’s programs and physical facilities.
Your donation to the Friends will help both youth and adults appreciate and understand Wisconsin’s natural resources, along with environmental issues unique to Wisconsin, protection, and management. Your gift will benefit programs at MacKenzie Center that provide individuals with the knowledge and skills to act as environmentally responsible citizens.
