The Conserve School

Conserve School was founded in 2002 to fulfill James R. Lowenstine's dream of creating a school at which children could be offered a comprehensive college preparatory education with a special emphasis on nature studies. It was his hope that for some students this would lead to ultimate employment in areas related to the preservation of our lakes, forests, and streams for public recreation without spoliation, and in the general science of the conservation of natural resources. Needless to say, we were excited to visit this campus and meet the students who learn and live in the woods of Land O' Lakes, WI.  Our new friend, Gretchen, showed us around and invited us to play some evening ultimate frisbee.  The next day, we spoke to 40 freshman and eight staff members about Leave No Trace and the ethics involved with appreciation and protection of the natural lands that we love.  The Conserve School is a Leave No Trace partner, and Headmaster Stefan Anderson and his staff enthusiastically incorporate Leave No Trace skills and ethics into the curriculum and activities of the school....and it shows.
