Wisconsin’s Historic Natural Resources Photos

February 17, 2015

University of Wisconsin Digital Collections in partnership with the Department of Natural Resources has just released a digital collection of historic photos. The photos in this collection, as captured and preserved by staff with the Wisconsin Conservation Department (1930s-1960s) and later the Department of Natural Resources (1960s-present), span more than a century and depict the stewardship of these agencies and the enjoyment and use of these natural resources by residents and visitors to the state. Browse or search the collection, here.

Visit the State of Wisconsin Collection to find other digital collections of interest to scholarship about the state, its individuals and institutions.
