The department can use your help in managing these lands, including property posting, habitat improvements, litter removal, surveys, financial donations and many other activities. Sponsors may choose from over 200 fish and wildlife areas throughout Wisconsin. If you or your organization is interested in adopting a Fish or Wildlife Area, please submit an application [PDF] [PDF help] to your local DNR office. Partner efforts will be recognized through property signage and media outreach, thanks for your support!
