Chippewa Savannas

70623111_10157416136024360_8499841287824867328_n.jpgThe Chippewa Savannas Chapter is partially within the Driftless Area of western Wisconsin. The area contains dry hill prairies commonly found in the Driftless Area, but we also have savannas through the chapter's area.  River terrace prairies and savannas are found along our large rivers. We share our knowledge within our membership, and with others through outreach activities. The chapter covers Pepin, Dunn and Eau Claire Counties in Wisconsin. We invite you to join us! Learn more by visiting the About our chapter and Sites and Projects pages.

Work parties are a great way to get out in our local prairies, have fun and make new friends, not to mention do some actual work to protect and restore these special places. From time to time we also have events, classes, and educational activities that require volunteer help. To receive direct emails about upcoming work parties, send an email to theprairieenthusiasts.csc@gmail.com. We promise to only use this list for volunteer opportunities, and will never use it for spam, fundraising, political stuff and we certainly will not sell your email address.

Upcoming Events

 

November 14 - Dobbs Landing Work Party from 1PM to 4PM

Volunteers are needed to help improve the firebreaks on the Western side of Dobbs Landing. Skilled chainsaw operators are welcome, but mostly we just need an army of people to drag and stack brush on burn piles. Since volunteers will be working with fire and walking on uneven surfaces, we ask that you dress ready for such activities and for the weather. You are strongly suggested to wear old clothes, as burning embers may torch you new Eddie Bauer anorak.

We will be observing social distancing and wearing masks when appropriate. Contact Kathy Ruggles at 715-664-8368 or at kathyaruggles@gmail.com if you have questions and/or are planning to join us, so that we can plan the activities and also let you know in case that date needs to be cancelled.

RAIN DATE: Sunday, November 15 1-4 PM.
