“In the end, we will protect only what we love.  We will love only what we understand.  We will understand only what we are taught.”  – Baba Dioum






A greenprint is to a community what a blueprint is to a builder.  We are updating the Greenprint Plan and need community input.

Tell us why and help us protect its valuable historic, natural, and agricultural resources!

This summer, Madison-Morgan Conservancy staff will be coming to a town near you to get your input:

Bring us info, photos, addresses of important places, or just come tell us what general qualities you cherish about Morgan County.  We want to know what you’d like to see protected – your favorite farm or beautiful vista, a special natural area, important wildlife habitat, a future publicpark, a historic building, or a trail you’d like to see built. And please spread the word to your family, friends, and neighbors!

The data will be collected and mapped and presented to Morgan County for adoption late this summer.  We hope you will take this chance to influence the future plan for Morgan County.


In 2004 Morgan County adopted the first county-wide Greenprint in the state.  See the natural, agricultural, and historic resources documented in the Morgan County Greenprint.

In 2009 the City of Madison adopted their own Greenprint, which includes the identification of 30 important resources as well as goals and objectives through which the City plans to protect those resources.

In 2010, the Conservancy compiled two guides to these greenprints.  Explore these documents to learn about our natural, agricultural, and historic resources:
