St. Croix Valley
St. Croix Chapter is located in an area that at one time included large dry prairies. Today there are small remnants that still contain some uncommon plants associated with those historic prairies. Our chapter works on a few of these, visits others to appreciate what is left, and educates folks on fire-dependent ecosystems.
The St. Croix chapter covers Pierce, Polk and St. Croix Counties in Wisconsin. We invite you to join us!
Please join us for a snow seeding!
Snow seeding is unique because the seeds hit the snow, warm with the sunlight and sink to the ground. The seeds we spread need to be cold and moist for a few days in order to sprout. The rain and snows that follow, along with alternating freeze and thaw cycles will see-saw the seed into the soil just as it occurs naturally.
This past winter volunteers have cleared a lot of cedars, buckthorn, and Siberian elm in the Foster Conservation Area and at Alexander oak savanna. We need your help to spread locally collected grass and flower seed on the areas left bare.
Date: Saturday March 3
Time: 10:00 am - 2:00 pm; volunteer for 1, 2, 3, or 4 hours; whatever you can do is appreciated.
