Landmark has been working with partners in Prescott for several years on the purchase and permanent protection of the 76-acre Pine Coulee, located near the confluence of the St. Croix and Mississippi Rivers. We have sought public and private grants and received a strong response from individual supporters.  

This past April, we participated in giveBIG St. Croix Valley and raised an additional $31,000 for the effort, bringing us to nearly three-quarters of our goal!  

We await a grant decision that could help us approach the finish line of $950,000 to purchase the property. We applied for a federal grant from the U.S. Forest Service’s Community Forest Program this past winter and expect a decision early summer. 

Thank you to our generous community of supporters for continuing to walk alongside us as we fundraise to protect this natural treasure! We are especially grateful for our partners at Coulee River Trails and Freedom Park. Read below some testimonials that helped us rally support this last April to raise additional funds to protect Pine Coulee for future generations!
