Who We Are

governments, state, Tribal, & federal government agencies, academic institutions, & non-profit organizations working within the Lake Superior Basin of Wisconsin.

Shared Vision

The communities & ecosystems of Wisconsin’s Lake Superior Basin are climate resilient & supported by sustained & collaborative conservation partnerships and projects.


The Lake Superior Collaborative formed in 2018 after regional partners identified the need & desire for continued collaboration, networking, & knowledge-sharing that was provided by prior regional partnerships. The LSC evolved from previous partnership efforts including the Lake Superior Basin Partner Team (1998-2012), the Chequamegon Bay Area Partnership (2009-2017), & the Lake Superior Landscape Restoration Partnership (2014-2017). The Lake Superior Collaborative now operates under the principles set forth in the Lake Superior Collaborative Charter (established 2018 & revised in 2020).
