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 [email protected] 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.

Help Needed with Fire Breaks

October 16 at Dobbs Landing at 1PM

We will continue our fire break clearing at Dobbs Landing and also collecting grass seeds. We would appreciate your help in either effort or you could divide your time to participate in both. In either case you'll want to wear sturdy shoes and if working on the fire break you'll want to have heavy duty gloves and apparel.

We hope you can help that day and would appreciate your letting us know with an email to [email protected] with "Fire Breaks" in the subject line. That way we can notify you of last-minute changes. Our rain date for this work day will be Saturday, October 30th at 1PM.
