A Threatened Treasure

The Dells of the Wisconsin River contains some of the most beautiful and threatened scenic and recreation resources in the Midwestern United States.

Increasing pressure for riverfront development in the Dells area threatens to mar the natural beauty of the Dells of the Wisconsin River with highly visible resorts, condominiums and homes, degrading the environment and forever changing the natural beauty of the Dells.

The Stewards of the Dells

Since April 2006, the Stewards of the Dells of the Wisconsin River has sought to protect the 15 miles of shore frontage along the Upper and Lower Dells from Nine Eagles to the Rocky Islands, including such famous landmarks as Stand Rock and the Rocky Islands of the Lower Dells, by supporting the work of the DNR, local and county governments, businesses, landowners, and civic groups and concerned citizens with an interest in preserving the beauty and environment of the Dells of the Wisconsin River.

We are all Stewards
