Unique educational opportunity:
WWA has one unique education-based property: our long-term project at Abrams, just north of Green Bay. This property, the only property that WWA actually owns, located at the split of US 41 and US 141; between Green Bay & Oconto, currently encompasses 152 acres, and is a mix of wetland mitigation, natural wetlands, riverine, mixed upland, and woodland habitats. This property is open to the public for hunting and other recreational pursuits, as well as use by local students of all ages, as an outdoor laboratory. Our team of volunteers in Green Bay is highly focused on this property, and is in the midst of a multi-phase process of developing the property, both for further use in education, but also with a special focus on accessibility for disabled individuals, providing unique access and custom blinds for hunters who might not otherwise get to experience the outstanding waterfowl hunting that is available near the waters of Green Bay. We have partnered with Oconto County, Challenge the Outdoors, the Lumberjack RC & D Corporation, and the State of Wisconsin Knowles-Nelson Stewardship Fund, as well as many private companies and individuals, to accomplish the many tasks that are required at this property, to bring it to its full potential.

We can help connect you to existing teams of mentors, or help you with the process of setting up your own team. Or simply donate to WWA; your dollars can help us with entry fees, equipment purchases, and staff mileage to be able to bring these programs and outreach efforts, all over the great state of Wisconsin.
By making a donation you’ll be helping not only educate Wisconsin’s youth in our incredible outdoor resources & traditions, but also creating more wetland restorations for Wisconsin’s waterfowl, and all the other species wetlands support.
