Volunteer Days and Field Trips

Thank you for you patience as we update our website.

Volunteer on our Chiwaukee Prairie Work Days as we restore and manage the prairie.
All we need is you to help! No experience necessary. On the job training!
Dress for the weather, bring work gloves, protective eyewear and, if you plan to stay the entire time, bring a lunch for after the work party. We have tools and the equipment to get the job done. If the weather is hot, be sure to bring plenty of water. We hope to see you there!

Chiwaukee South – Work Schedule: 3rd Saturday of each month 10 A.M. – 1 P.M.
Meet north of 121st Street on 2nd Avenue unless noted below. Click here for a map of “Chiwaukee South”.
If you have questions, reply to this email or call 262-658-8336.

Upcoming Work Party Dates/Events:

  • February 18, 2017
    This Saturday we will finish cutting and treating brush on the lot we started clearing in October and work in nearby areas. We will be lopping and sawing, painting stumps and hauling, the usual fun time! The weather prediction is for mostly sunny skies with a high in the 50s and a southwest breeze. Dress in layers of old clothes! As always, we provide tools and gloves. The monthly workday is from 10 AM to 1 PM. Come for part or all of it.

    We will meet on 2nd Avenue at 121st Street. )
