Schurch-Thomson Prairie in Late Summer

Sept. 1 (Saturday afternoon)         Schurch-Thomson Prairie in late Summer                                 Iowa Co., WI
Come hike into the secluded valley of the Schurch-Thomson and Underwood prairies.  Late summer wildflowers such as rough blazingstar, cream gentian, various prairie goldenrods and asters should be in full bloom.  We will also see prairie plantings and inter-seedings of various ages.  Schurch-Thomson Prairie is a 193-acre unit of TPE’s 570-acre Mounds View Grassland preserve and it is adjacent to the privately owned Underwood Prairie (Hanley Family Trust), for which TPE has a management agreement to manage and restore prairie on approximately 20 acres.   Be prepared for a long hike, some off trail.  So, bring long pants, sturdy shoes, a hat, and sunscreen. 
Time: 1:00 to 4:00 PM                            Trip Leader:  Rich Henderson (608-845-7065 or [email protected])
Directions:  Address is 8624 Reilly Road, Barneveld.  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.)
