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!

Hopefully this is already on your calendar. Join the Coulee Region Chapter in a chapter meeting to discuss local chapter projects. We'll also get an update from our Board Representatives on what TPE. After the meeting and lunch, we will hike a burn unit that Justin Trails Resort has prepared burn breaks for. Unless weather conditions change drastically, we will not have suitable weather to burn the unit but come ready to discuss the ins and outs of prescribed burning and burn unit development. During the hike of the burn unit, property owner Donna Justin will guide our hike through oak woodland restoration and bluff prairie restoration the Justins have started.
When: Saturday November 12. 10:00 am meeting; Chili lunch provided by Justin Trails Resort about 12:00 noon, if folks are willing and able to bring sides, please do.
Where: Justin Trails Resort at 7452 Kathryn Ave, Sparta, WI 54656; Meeting will take place on the first floor (parking lot level) of the event barn.
What: Discuss chapter and organization projects, lunch, and a prescribed burn unit hike.
Please come prepared for the weather. Hike will be mostly on trails or burn breaks but will include some steep and rocky terrain. Thanks to the Justins for hosting! Hope to see you there.
