Mounds View Grassland Hike - Reviving a Lost Prairie Landscape

 
Come for a long hike into TPE’s 570-acre Mounds View Grassland preserve.   We will see the progress being made in bringing back to life degraded remnant prairies, converting non-native cool-season grass to native prairie, renovating streams, wetlands, and seeps, and planting agricultural fields to prairie.  We will be encountering rich displays of mid-summer prairie flowers.  Along the way, will also have opportunity to observe and hear many uncommon grassland birds, as well as butterflies and bumblebees.  Be prepared for a long hike (some off trail) and occasional steep slopes. 
 
What to Bring/Wear: Long pants, hat, water, and binoculars are recommended.

Directions to Site: (8624 Reilly Road, Barneveld, WI) From the intersection of US Hwy 18-151 and County F (south of Blue Mounds in western Dane County), take F approximately 5 miles south. Turn right onto Reilly Road, and proceed to parking lot and kiosks at the end of the road (past the barn).  (Note: A half mile down F from 18-151, pay close attention to the road signs, for F turns to the right & the straight-ahead road becomes County Z.  Stay on F.)
