LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) - The Mississippi Valley Conservancy is celebrating 20 years of land protection and restoration.

Since 1997, the nonprofit organization has worked with area private landowners and municipalities to voluntarily join conservation projects along or near the Mississippi River.

On Saturday morning, members of the conservancy came together to celebrate the anniversary and to talk about plans for the next 20 years.

Officials with the organization say the first 20 years were only the start.

The organization is now looking to rise over $400,000 to purchase land that will protect the habitat of area bats.
