Wisconsin is known for its successful dairy industry and picturesque farmland.  It is also home to millions of acres of forest and over 15,000 lakes.  Every corner of the state is filled with unexpected natural beauty.

 

Throughout its early history, activities such as mining, logging, and unsustainable farming practices took their toll on Wisconsin’s landscape.  However, at the start of the 1930s, organizations like the Citizens Conservation Corp began advocating for government protection.  This led to the establishment of Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest, Apostle Islands National Lakeshore, Ice Age National Scenic Trail, North Country National Scenic Trail, and Saint Croix National Scenic Riverway.  These sites protect all the natural and human history within them, ensuring it can be enjoyed for generations to come.

 

While early Wisconsin farmers struggled to use the land to its full potential, agriculture is the state’s top industry today.  Wisconsin is known for growing more corn than any other state and also produces large amounts of cranberries, oats, and potatoes.  These vast fields of crops may not be naturally occurring, but are still one of the things that makes Wisconsin beautiful.
