"For the Wild" Volunteer Field Days at Devil's Backbone State Natural Area, near Prairie du Chien
Got a little spring fever? Spring is a great time to get out and help improve habitat for migratory birds. Did you know that prescribed burns that help protect the food supply for our native wildlife.
Join me, Land Manager Levi Plath, for a day of firebreak construction – an essential step in having a safe and efficient burn in the springtime. We'll see many signs of Spring and cure that spring fever while helping our friends the sandhill cranes, bluebirds, meadowlarks, and cerulean warblers.
WHAT TO BRING: Weather-appropriate clothing, plenty of drinking water and a snack. Conservancy will provide gloves, safety glasses and tools.
Carpooling is available from our office in La Crosse (with advance notification) – or you can meet us at the property. Please contact me if you'd like to carpool at 608-784-3606 ext.5.
Can't make this date, consider making a DONATION to the Conservancy's land management efforts! Whether it be money, tools, equipment, or FOOD for the volunteer day, YOU can help us to save and care for the land and wildlife!
Hope to see you out there!
~ Levi Plath, Land Manager
