Summer Property Tours

Our summer property tours and potlucks are the cornerstone (or better said "keystone") of our BMAP community. Each summer we organize three potluck outings to BMAP member properties. Gather with us to share land management techniques, hear habitat preservation stories, and hike through varied landscapes in camaraderie with other BMAP members.

BMAP Work Parties

Unite your efforts with a team of BMAP Members to complete a project on your own or on other BMAP Member properties. This is a great opportunity to learn about or to share your knowledge of the varied practices of land stewardship through hands-on experience.

Walk with a Naturalist

Join us for a Walk with a Naturalist! You will meet a naturalist at a local, public natural area for a two-hour walk to explore the area and discuss plant life, birds, butterflies or wildlife we may encounter along the way. Nurture your curiosity and join us to learn about these places that are available to you.

We occasionally organize and offer classes and workshops on plant ID, trail building, seed starting, conservation legacy options, or other "habitat preservation on private lands" educational activities. Open and active workshops can all be found listed below in our Upcoming Events.

Winter Conversations:
Winter Lecture Series

In the long, winter months of February and March BMAP hosts a series of three lectures presented by conservation professionals, storytellers, advocates, or educators. Though the themes or topics vary, they all help illuminate our shared dedication and connection to the Southwestern WI landscape.
