Summary:  The Kickapoo Valley Reserve in southwest Wisconsin is an 8,600-acre ecological gem. It’s story of how it came to be and how it is currently managed by a citizen’s-board on behalf of the State and Ho-Chunk Nation is as unique as the property itself. What can we learn from the experience of a federal project gone wrong and an important property protected? Turns out, quite a bit.  There are some similarities between the Badger project and Kickapoo Reserve.

The “We Are Sauk Prairie” series is generously supported through a grant from Alliant Energy Foundation.
