Because community is a huge aspect of our work, we strive to provide opportunities for local folks and visitors alike to become better acquainted with the greater Sauk Prairie area, and the restoration work being completed at the Badger Army Ammunition Plant!
|PICNIC ON THE PRAIRIE
Summertime visits to blooming fields where buildings once stood, stand evidence to the wonderful restoration work being conducted by Alliance volunteers!
|PRAIRIE FESTIVAL AND SEED PLANTING
Food, music, panel discussions, kids’ activities, and sowing prairie seeds highlight this fall celebration of the rebirth of the Sauk Prairie.
The Alliance is working with the UW-Madison Nelson Institute to develop coursework relating to Badger's history and future as a multiple land use model. Please stay tuned!
To coincide with a special exhibit during the winter of 2000 at the Water Street Gallery in the village of Prairie du Sac, the Alliance, Badger History Group and Mike and Paula Bunch’s Water Street Gallery organized a series of 10 free lectures on the history of the Great Sauk Prairie, created when the Wisconsin Glacier failed, resulting in outwash deposition across 14,000 acres.
The Alliance has partnered with several area organizations to offer prairie restoration opportunities for their members, including The Youth Environmental Projects of Sauk County, Cub Scouts, Ho Chunk Youth Groups, and more, helping to fulfill the goals of all organizations involved!
|FRIENDS AND MEMBERS TOUR
The Alliance occasionally provides tours to its friends and members in order to allow them to learn about the Sauk Prairie’s natural and cultural history, including flora and fauna, settlement patterns, and military production, and to welcome them to be a part of the property’s future!
Our mission statement and goals were developed as part of our strategic planning process in the spring of 2002, after incorporating as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
Work parties are a great way to meet others who are interested in conservation, the Sauk Prairie, or the Badger Army Ammunition Plant. It also presents a wonderful opportunity to learn more about Wisconsin's native prairie and savanna communities!
