Sauk Prairie Day: An Introduction to the Original Sauk Prairie.
Ever wondered where this area got its name from? The Sauk (Sak) Indians inhabited what once was a vast grassland—a prairie—that stretched across approximately 14,000 acres between the southern edge of the Baraboo Hills and the Wisconsin River. Join us for a series of short presentations at the Ruth Culver Community Library on Saturday, August 29th to learn about the geological origins of this fascinating landscape, what constitutes a prairie, and what remains of the original Sauk Prairie. Find out what the landowners at Badger are currently doing to protect and restore elements of the Sauk Prairie by visiting several prairie remnants in the Sauk-Prairie area. See “Events” for details. More details to follow.
