EMPIRE-SAUK: PRAIRIE & SAVANNA BLOOMS
Dane County Field Trip
Friday, July 28 – 6:00 PM to 7:30 PM
Location: Sugar River Oak Savanna
Come see what 6 million acres of southern and western Wisconsin once looked like. Displays of prairie blazing star, false foxglove, pale Indian plantain, and dozens of other prairie and savannas flowers should be in bloom. Just what and how much will depend upon when the rains return. This diverse 9-acre preserve of The Prairie Enthusiasts has had frequent fire since 1976, which has brought about a very diverse flora of nearly 400 native plant species.
From the intersection of CTH M and PD (north of Verona and SW of Madison) take PD west 3.0 miles to Timber Lane, turn right (north) on to Timber Lane and then immediately turn left into a joint driveway. Proceed to the brick house (2845 Timber Lane). Park in mowed lawn (please do not block the neighbor’s driveway).
If you plan to attend, please let the trip leader know at least 12 hours in advance, in case of changes in the schedule or cancelation due to severe weather, should they occur. Also contact them if you have questions.
