If we are to save our state land from a Kohler Co. takeover and save our natural resources from destruction, it will be because we stood up and made it happen.


The Kohler Co. intends to tear up 247 acres of pristine forest on the shore of Lake Michigan, including dunes, wetlands and Indian Mounds to build their 5th golf course in our county. This exclusive course is affordable only to the 1%. This will destroy our ecosystem, pollute our Great Lake and Black River with toxic runoff and affect local wells from the over 30 million gallons of water the course will use yearly. The deforestation of 150 acres will destroy animal habitat and disrupt a major migratory corridor along the lakeshore.

The Wisconsin DNR is considering giving the company state land in order to access this property to begin the destruction. This has to be stopped! We need money to spread the word, conduct community information events, request public records, and for postage, printing and consultants.

FBRF just finished a week long administrative law hearing challenging the DNR Wetland Fill Permit allowing Kohler to destroy globally significant wetlands, significant Kohler Andrae State Park acreage, and permanently alter the ecosystem of this rare central Wisconsin coastal area. With your donations and a generous grant for environmental litigation we have gotten through the first hurdle. Two more challenges remain. Please continue to share this very important fight to protect and preserve our Wisconsin natural resources and to prevent companies from contaminating our land air and water for their own profits. Thank you to all of you who have brought us to this point. Grassroots groups like FBRF are leading the fight to take back our state from environmental profiteers.
