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 among 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!

Next Chapter Meeting
December 8 at 10:00 a.m.
We'll meet at UW-L in Room 301. In addition to chapter news and disussions on topics of interest, Scott Fulton amd Chris Kirkpartrick will make their annual visit with our chapter to get input from our chapter. Always a good exchange of needs and ideas.
Dates and details have not been completely set for these at this time, and we'll be flexible based on weather conditions. Contact Jim Rogala (email@example.com; call or text 608-799-6344) to volunteer or to get more details on any of these workdays.
Fall prescribed burns. We'll be trying to get in a couple prescribed burns in early November.
Seed collecting. We'll be collecting at Holland Sand Prairie near Holmen in October. This seed is used to interseed into degraded areas at this site.
Tree felling. Experienced sawyers needed! There are still unwanted trees at Holland Sand Prairie that we are looking to drop and buck-up. No hauling of wood is needed, as Mississippi Valley Conservancy has arranged for the Challenge Acamedy to perform that task in late November. We'll probably set some dates in early Novemebr for these workdays.
