Rocky Run Oak Savanna SNA

  • Rocky Run Oak Savanna SNA (Meet at Goose Pond to carpool) W7503 Kampen Road Arlington, WI, 53911 United States (map)

The 455-acre Rocky Run Oak Savanna contains bur, white, and black oak savanna, a box canyon, and more than 100 plant species along with a diversity of reptiles and butterflies.   Rocky Run contains the highest density of whip-poor-wills in Columbia County and hosts many other savanna bird species. Over 30 years ago Madison Audubon volunteers assisted the DNR in removing red cedar trees from the site. Join us in exploring a state natural area with a diversity of habitats, plants, and wildlife.

We will meet at W7503 Kampen Road, car pool to the site and return to Goose Pond for a picnic lunch. Wear closed shoes and long pants — there will be plenty of poison ivy!
