5 Ways 1000 Friends is helping Wisconsin

Take a look at five of the ways 1000 Friends of Wisconsin is helping communities across Wisconsin grow in smarter, healthier, and more environmentally friendly ways.

Protecting Watersheds

We’re working in Southeastern Wisconsin to reduce polluted runoff and promote green infrastructure practices through our codes and ordinances reviews, resulting in cleaner water for people, and wildlife too.

Advocating for Transportation Options

We advocate for better transit options, more biking opportunities, a safer experiences for pedestrians, and funding for local roads.

Revitalizing Communities & Promoting Economic Growth

Along with our partners, we’re promoting sustainable practices by developing green infrastructure in Milwaukee’s 30th Street Corridor.

Improving the economy, environment & quality of life in communities.

To date, 12 communities across Wisconsin have signed the Green Tier Legacy Communities Charter, working to create more sustainable communities throughout Wisconsin.


We’re educating communities about placemaking by holding conferences, promoting walkable neighborhoods, and encouraging people to participate in creating more sustainable neighborhoods.

Thank you to our generous supporters for making this work possible.
