Piling Invasive Brush & Trees

Saturday, April 20 – 9:00 a.m. to Noon 

Location: Moely Prairie

Please join us as we continue our efforts in removing and piling invasive trees and brush that remain on the property.

Volunteers have been working in earnest on this small 23.5 acre remnant Moely Prairie for the last 8 years and tremendous progress has been made in clearing the large stands of invasive trees and brush. The property is very unique as it’s completely surrounded by the village of Prairie du Sac, but still offers a peaceful respite to hike, cross country ski and snowshoe. This location also provides meaningful educational opportunities and citizen science programming for our local students and residents who have also been helping with our restoration efforts. We’ve been excited to watch our native plant inventory grow from 70 species when we started, to just over 200 in the time we’ve been doing restoration work and controlled burns.


Please wear long sleeves, long pants and sturdy, closed-toed shoes. Bring your own work gloves and your favorite equipment if you wish. (loppers, chainsaws, etc) Extra loppers and herbicide will be available for use.
