Chippewa Savannas

The 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.  In addition, 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 Chippewa Savannas Chapter covers Pepin, Dunn and Eau Claire Counties in Wisconsin. We invite you to join us!
