Tommy Thompson on Environment

Former Secretary of H.H.S.; former Republican Governor (WI)


Funded $170M in “conservation easement” land purchases

Stewardship Fund: Gov. Thompson created the innovative program in 1989 and he has used it to purchase the three largest land acquisitions in state history. The governor renews Wisconsin’s environmental legacy by creating Stewardship 2000.

The Conservation Reserve Enhancement Program leverages an additional $170 million in federal funding to bolster Stewardship 2000 through buying land easements to protect sensitive habitats and waters throughout the state.
