The Southwest chapter covers Grant, Crawford, Richland, and Iowa Counties in Wisconsin. We invite you to join us!
Southwest Chapter is in the heart of the Driftless Area of southwestern Wisconsin. The area contains dry hill prairies, river terrace sand and wet prairies, and oak savannas. We have many TPE-owned properties that require our care in managing and restoring. Our chapter was one of the first chapters formed, and we have a rich history!
A field trip coming up! See the TPE event calendar for details.
