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!

March 18 Chapter Meeting/Burn Refresher - This meeting will include our annual prescribed burn refresher. In addition to the usual review, we will include a discussion on writing burn plans. Due to the recent snowfall, we will not be able to conduct a burn after the meeting. The meeting will be at 10:00 in Room 301, Cowley Hall at UW-L (directions). Due to construction in the old parking lot, we'll need to use the lot to the east of Cowley Hall (the Mitchell Hall lot). We'll start at 10:00. Hope to see you there.
2017 prescribed burn planning - We will again compile information on planned burns and people interested in volunteering on burns. Send the information below to email:
To advertise a burn: send contact info, location, size, type (e.g., prairie grass, woodland), and target date(s).
To get on the volunteer list: send me contact info, travel limits, and what days/times of day you are available.
Thanks to volunteers - Several members have volunteered to help plan for the TPE 2017 picnic and 2018 conference and banquet. If others are interested in joining the committees, let me know.
