Kalscheur Oak Savanna Field Trip

Come look for butterflies and flowers on this 19-acre TPE preserve managed by the Empire-Sauk Chapter.  The site is topographically diverse, and covered with scattered oak trees and prairie openings.  At the base of the slope, springs and ground water seeps flow into a stream-side wetland complex.  To date, 243 native plant and 42 butterfly species have been identified on site.  Close focusing binoculars are recommended for butterfly viewing.  Be prepared for off-trail hiking.  This is a joint field trip with the Southern WI Butterfly Association.

What to Bring/Wear: Long pants, hat, and binoculars are recommended.

Directions:  From the Village of Hollandale in southeastern Iowa Co, take County Road K south from Hwy 39 for 2.44 miles.  Look for a small TPE sign on the left (northeast) side of the road.  Note: the preserve entrance is ¼ mi past the bridge over Olson Creek on County K.  Parking is along the road, be sure to park at least 3 ft off pavement.  We will be hiking in from there.
