Fred Dalleska Memorial Fund
In 2006, Fred and Edith Dalleska permanently protected their 80-acre property in Polk County, Wisconsin via conservation easement. Their decision to conserve this forested property protects the natural environment for diverse wildlife, including habitat for spawning brook trout in the crystal-clear springs feeding the North Branch of the Trade River that borders Straight Lake State Park.
Landmark Conservancy is grateful to Fred and Edith for their foresight in conserving this unique property and honored to be part of Fred’s legacy. We hope Fred’s family and friends find comfort in knowing that his special corner of the world remains permanently protected and sustaining our planet’s natural systems.
Landmark Conservancy is an accredited, nonprofit land trust and has protected over 40,000 acres in western and northwestern Wisconsin. Protected land is monitored annually to ensure natural resource values are upheld, and outreach to new landowners is ongoing, particularly in areas that will be important for biodiversity as the climate changes.
