Gaylord Nelson was a founding member and Honorary Chair of 1000 Friends of Wisconsin. We work to keep his spirit alive and to continue to do the work he felt was so critical to the future of Wisconsin.

“We have an historic opportunity to impact land use policy in Wisconsin and to reverse the trend toward more sprawl. 1000 Friends of Wisconsin is determined not to let this opportunity slip by. Through research, legislative advocacy and public education, 1000 Friends is turning the tide in the fight against sprawl.”-Senator Gaylord Nelson 1996
