Heritage Plant Monitoring


Volunteer on our Chiwaukee Prairie Work Days as we restore and manage the prairie.
All we need is you to help! No experience necessary. On the job training!
Dress for the weather, bring work gloves, protective eyewear and, if you plan to stay the entire time, bring a lunch for after the work party. We have tools and the equipment to get the job done. If the weather is hot, be sure to bring plenty of water. We hope to see you there!

Chiwaukee South – Work Schedule: 3rd Saturday of each month 10 A.M. – 1 P.M.
Meet north of 121st Street on 2nd Avenue unless noted below. 

If you have questions, reply to this email or call 262-658-8336.
