Learn and Network on the Prairie!

Every other weekend May 4 – June 9 | The Empire-Sauk Chapter is hosting a Wisconsin Master Naturalist Volunteer training this spring.  This class prepares new volunteers to become land stewards, citizen scientists, and environmental educators. It will be held at the Schurch-Thomson Prairie barn, a working barn used extensively for prairie restoration. Students will hike remnant prairies, prairie plantings, seed production beds, woodlands, and wetlands. They will take field trips around the region to explore local geology, soils, plant communities, watersheds, mammals, and pollinators. Many familiar faces and guest experts will join the fun.

The class runs every other weekend from May 4 – June 9 (while the prairie smoke is in bloom!).  To learn more and to register, visit this link:
