Prairie flowers!  Savanna birds! Field trip to rare oak savanna

It has been estimated that only one tenth of one percent of the original tall grass prairie in the United States still remains.  As rare as native prairie habitat is, remnants of the oak savanna habitat that often accompanied the prairie are even rarer!  For the past 20 years, the St. Croix Valley Chapter of The Prairie Enthusiasts has been restoring oak savanna habitat on a site just a few miles south of River Falls.  We would love to share with you the results of our efforts and tell you about future plans that we have for the site. 

Please join us for a guided hike of the Alexander Savanna and enjoy the native plants and birds that are found there.  The hike will be approximately 1 mile in length and is mostly level with one short climb.  Kids are not only welcome but encouraged to attend. 

Date:  June 27, 2021 (Sunday)

Time:  1pm - 2:30pm

Directions:  From I-94, take highway 35 south towards River Falls.

Follow highway 65 south (35 turns into 65) toward Ellsworth. Just after the River Falls Township Hall (a couple of miles south or River Falls), turn right into a field.  Look for flags.
