Prairie Sands Chapter is located in the geological center of Wisconsin in the sandy soils of ancient glacial lakes. This region features some of the state’s premier examples of remnant dry prairies, pine barrens and oak savannas. Research and protection for the endangered Karner blue butterfly and the greater prairie chicken is centered in this region.
The Prairie Sands chapter covers Adams, Marquette, Juneau, Portage, Waushara, Waupaca, and Green Lake Counties in Wisconsin. We invite you to join us!
Successful Holiday Party/Seed Exchange!
Prairie Sands Chapter held its annual Christmas Potluck and Seed Exchange on December 1, at the home of Charles and Barb Church of Montello. Twenty chapter members attended. After a delicious supper of stew and side dishes, there was a chapter meeting at which time the group presented the chapter board member and treasure, David Hamel, the 2016 chapter Conservationist of the Year Award for his leadership and his volunteer commitment to chapter activities.
