This event has a capacity of 9 guests. Preregistration is required (see below).
Come for a long leisurely walk through original remnant prairie and prairie plantings! If our timing and the conditions are right, we will see many wildflowers, including prairie lilies, wild quinine, pale purple coneflower, white Baptisia, and uncommon grassland birds such as bobolinks, meadowlarks, grasshopper sparrows, upland sandpipers, and Henslow’s sparrows, as well as butterflies and bumblebees. Be prepared for a long hike (some off trail) and occasional steep slopes. Bring water, hat, sun screen, long pants, and binoculars.
Do to COVID-19, we will be practicing a minimum of 6 ft distancing and the number of participants is limited to 9. To keep participants separated, we highly recommend using binoculars to see insects and plants being pointed out along the way. For more information, please see the Covid-19 resources page.
Specific 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.)
