Through local action, public programs, newsletters, and this web site WEAL provides up-to-date information on environmental issues to the general public, teachers, county, city, and village officials and state legislators. WEAL was formed in 1978 by citizens alarmed by development threatening Waukesha County's natural resources. Since then, many WEAL members have become active in local and county government, greatly influencing the environmental well-being of Waukesha County. There is much to be done. Pressures from development continue to increase, straining resources, diminishing wildlife habitat, and spoiling Waukesha's rural environment and quality of life. Citizens should be concerned because adequate safeguards are not yet established in many areas.
WEAL's MissionTo represent the Waukesha County community for the protection of Waukesha County's
natural resources through dedicated grass-roots participation and action.
