The Fall 2017 “We Are Sauk Prairie” program series features Linda Lynch, Director, Riverland Conservancy, as our guest speaker on Thursday, October 19, 6:30pm, Ruth Culver Community Library, 540 Water Street, Prsairie du Sac.
Her program is entitled, The Merrimac Preserve: Preserving and Restoring its Diverse Natural Communities
Linda will share with us the history of the Preserve and current habitat restoration efforts underway at this ever-expanding preserve. Lying adjacent to the east boundary of Devils Lake and a short distance from the state-owned portion of Badger, the 1,650-acre Merrimac Preserve is an important model for landscape restoration and serves as a vital ecological link and corridor connecting those large protected areas.
The “We Are Sauk Prairie” series is generously supported by Alliant Energy Foundation.
