Coulee Region Chapter is within the Driftless Region of western Wisconsin. The area contains dry hill prairies, river terrace sand prairies, oak savanna, and oak barrens. Many members have small hill prairie remnants, and we work on those along with partnering on other lands. We share the vast knowledge within our membership amongst ourselves, and with others through outreach activities.The Coulee Region chapter covers Buffalo, Jackson, La Crosse, Monroe, Trempealeau and Vernon Counties in Wisconsin. We invite you to join us!
