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!

We have already scheduled 4 field trips (see below), but still room on the calendar to add more. Start thinking about a hike you might want to host. You don't need to be an expert to lead a hike, and, in fact, hikes can provide opportunities to discuss management methods to improve your prairie of interest. Please send ideas or questions to Jim Rogala ([email protected]).
May 15 - Zoerb Prairie. A hill prairie hike in La Crosse. After the hike we'll have a girdling party with a demo of this control method.
June 12 - Hixon Forest Prairies. A soils and geology hike at Zoerb and Lookout Prairies in La Crosse.
June 26 - Eagle Rock Savanna. A look at a restoration project near Readstown.
