Riverland Conservancy, Inc. began in 1997 as Wisconsin Power and Light Stewardship Trust, Inc. through the generous donation of lands and equipment by Wisconsin Power and Light Co.  In 1999, Wisconsin Power and Light Land Stewardship Trust, Inc. changed its name to Riverland Conservancy, Inc., but continued to focus on the restoration and preservation of the Merrimac Preserve near Merrimac, WI.  In 2002, Interstate Power and Light Co. donated land near Lansing, IA to Riverland Conservancy, resulting in the addition of the Lansing Preserve to the lands owned and managed by Riverland Conservancy.

Riverland Conservancy, Inc. is a charitable organization as described in section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code and a private operating foundation under section 509(a) of the Internal Revenue Code.
