The Prairie Enthusiasts (Empire-Sauk Chapter) Black Earth Rettenmund Prairie Invasives Removal Work Day

August 12, 2018 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

We’ll make some final passes in all three units to remove the few remaining sweet clover plants. (There won’t be many.) Come and help! As a bonus, the flowers should be good, too. The flowering spurge is spectacular this year, and there are lots of yellow coneflowers and others blooming, too. If we run out of sweet clover (hope, hope), we can work on the ever-present brush and vines that threaten this wonderful remnant prairie. Come help the prairie, please.

What to Bring/Wear: Hat, gloves, long pants, and sturdy shoes or boots, as well as bug juice, as needed. Also bring sharp eyes, the better to enjoy the flowers with. Tools and herbicide provided as needed. And snacks!

Work Party Leaders: Kathie and Tom Brock
