Prairies and Pollinators: An Ecological Restoration Tour

August 31, 2023

Ecological restoration of prairies in Wisconsin is not a simple chore, but an ongoing dedication to bring back native landscapes and habitats for our endemic plants, animals, and pollinators.

Join Landmark Conservancy and UW-Madison Extension on Thursday, August 31st as we take a tour of a variety of prairies taking root in the Chippewa Valley. This event is open to all ages and folks interested in the succession of prairie restoration and their pollinator counterparts.

Prairie Forbs Up Close

From remnant prairies to former agricultural fields, and a small-scale pollinator planting, we will see a little bit of everything! All prairies that will be visited are permanently protected with Landmark Conservancy.

In the field, participants will learn from the land managers at the DNR, Landmark Conservancy, and the Lower Chippewa River Alliance. During the afternoon, information on landowner programs specific to prairie management will be provided.

This event was rescheduled from Thursday, July 27th to Thursday, August 31st.
