Phil Wattles 2012

"Acquire, restore, preserve and manage prairie lands in the Chiwaukee Prairie - Carol Beach area of Kenosha County, Wisconsin which include rare, endangered and threatened species, lands with natural diversity, and viable self-sustaining ecological communities as well as to promote the conservation education of its members and the general public."

Saturday, November 15 Work Party
Prescribed fire is one of the best management tools for maintaining a healthy prairie. While a burn is planned for this fall, hopes are dwindling along with daylight hours. Pictured above is one of the last burns at Chiwaukee.

Many of you will remember Don Snyder, a super volunteer who loved the Prairie and who for two decades drove down from Menominee Falls to attend workdays. Don's family is planning a memorial gathering at Chiwaukee on November 26 (28 if bad weather). All are invited. If interested in attending, please reply for more information.

Saturday is our monthly workday from 10 AM to 1 PM. We will be removing invasive brush. As always, we will provide tools and gloves. The weather prediction for Saturday is a cold 35 degrees with a SW breeze at 9 mph.
We meet at 121st Street on Al Krampert Trail (2nd Avenue).
