RESCHEDULED: Fall Prairies in Faville Grove

  • Faville Grove Sanctuary W7480 Prairie Lane Lake Mills, WI, 53551 United States (map)

**This field trip was originally scheduled for Sept. 22 but delayed due to weather. Please join us on Sept. 29, same time and location!**

The prairie can be just as beautiful as the iconic northern forest in fall.  On this trip you will immerse yourself in the textures, colors, sounds, and smells of fall at Faville Grove. We will tour the Prairie Lane restorations and take note of the fall colors, late blooming wildflowers (such as gentians, asters, and goldenrods), talk about the role of seed collecting in our restorations, and more.

We will also give a tour and short presentation of our new solar panel array, which is designed to offset the energy consumption of the resident land steward's nearby house. The array will have been installed for nearly a year, and we will talk about the project's connections with our conservation efforts.

Hosted as part of Wisconsin's Land Trust Days.

Meet at the sanctuary parking area next to the kiosk on Prairie Lane.
