Prairie du Sac
Presenters: Denny Connor & Brandon Mann, site stewards for The Prairie Enthusiasts
The Prairie Enthusiasts have been actively managing Moely and Schluckebier Prairies for many years. Denny and Brandon will share the successes and challenges of site managing these two important prairie remnants. The original 14,000 acre Sauk Prairie formerly covered much of southern Sauk County. These two relict sites, along with Sauk Prairie Recreation Area, are the only remnants of that once magnificent prairie.
The presentation will describe the history of the sites and share their proactive management efforts including use of prescribed fire to restore these remnants.
