Prairie Sands Chapter is located in the geological center of Wisconsin in the sandy soils of ancient glacial lakes.
This region features some of the state’s premier examples of remnant dry prairies, pine barrens and oak savannas. Research and protection for the endangered Karner blue butterfly and the greater prairie chicken is centered in this region.
The Prairie Sands chapter covers Adams, Marquette, Juneau, Portage, Waushara, Waupaca, and Green Lake Counties in Wisconsin. We invite you to join us!
