GLACIAL PRAIRIE WORK DAY
Yatzek’s Fen: Buckthorn Removal
Saturday, March 11th – Noon to 3:00pm
Join us for a work day from noon until 3pm on Yahtzek’s Fen, the property of Becky Fedak and Pete German. We will be cutting and treating glossy buckthorn, an invasive species that threatens the ecological health of the site. This beautiful property is located adjacent to the Genesee Oak Opening and Fen State Natural Area. It is one of the premier calcareous fen remnants in SE Wisconsin. Becky and Pete would like to host a bonfire with food and drinks after the event.
The property is located near the intersection of STH 59 and CTH ZZ in Genesee. The address is not identified by Google Maps so please use the following pin location for directions:
Enter via the private, gravel driveway off of CTH ZZ. It is a new driveway so is not shown on the map, but the pin shows the approximate location of the drive (look for the piles of soil!). Follow the driveway to the homestead.
