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 management at these two important relicts of the original 14,000-acre Sauk Prairie that formerly covered much of southern Sauk County, offering regional and site-specific context. They will describe the history of the sites and share their proactive management efforts including use of prescribed fire.
The “We Are Sauk Prairie” series is supported by a grant from Alliant Energy Foundation.
