Protect Menomonie’s Hidden Gem for Future Generations

Community Support is Needed to Provide Safe Access to the Devil’s Punchbowl!

Landmark Conservancy is raising funds to build a new lower stairway, and an endowment fund is being seeded at the Community Foundation of Dunn County to provide for other long-term management needs.

We are pleased to have secured matching funds in partnership with Dunn County of up to $30,000 from Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources – KnowlesNelson Stewardship and $5,000 from Community Foundation of Dunn County. This means your gift today will be doubled, up to $35,000. 

Help us transform the current lower stairway to a modern, safer structure that will improve recreational experiences and safeguard ecological resources through better management of off-trail traffic.

Devils Punchbowl Fundraiser Gauge

“The “Punchbowl,” with its sandstone cliffs, picturesque waterfall, and surrounding mesic forest, presents a beautiful, botanically rich and educationally valuable natural laboratory in a tranquil and attractive setting. It is one of those infrequent, unique places which should definitely be preserved as an educational haven for future generations of students, scholars, and members of the community.”  

-Mark Fay, Ph. D 

Thank You to our Supporters!
