Erbe Grassland & Goplin Prairies

Come explore the newest addition to Erbe grassland, a 40-acre parcel acquired from Ed and Cheryle Goplin in March of this year.  It has both remnant prairie and restorations.  If we are fortunate, the endangered regal fritillary butterfly will be in fight.  Erbe Grassland is also a great site to experience rare and uncommon grassland birds such as upland sandpipers, bobolinks, meadowlarks, Henslow’s sparrows, grasshopper sparrows, and more, so bring binoculars.  Be prepared for a long hike off trail.  We recommend long pants, sturdy shoes, a hat, and sunscreen.

Difficulty: Moderate hiking (2 mile plus) over uneven terrain.

Directions:  Take US 18-151 west from Madison, at 1.5 miles west of Mt. Horeb, turn left (south) on Erbe Road.  Go for 0.7 miles and look for the parking lot and kiosk on right side of the road (across from quarry).
