Zoerb Prairie hike and girdling party

Zoerb Prairie is one of a few hill prairies in the City-owned Hixon Forest in La Crosse that is actively managed. Come see the progress, including the results of a 2021 spring burn.  We'll look at flora that is typical of hill prairies in the area. Most of the discussion during the hike will be about management, and then we'll follow the hike with a demonstration of girdling (see this blog post if unfamiliar with the method). Some tools will be available or bring your own favorite tool for the task. 

Meet at the NWS station on Hwy FA. From there it is a short fairly level walk to the prairie. If you choose to, there are steep hills to walk once we get there!
