Invitations to Tour the Property 2012 (2)

July 8, 2012 (Sunday evening) Rare Earth Farm - Bauer-Beckwith Property Green Co., WI
Come hike comfortable mowed trails on our managed 82 rolling acres, offering dry upland prairie remnants, oak savanna
openings, brush-free oak woodlands, a showy 18-acre restored planted prairie of great richness, along with moist, low areas newly
seeded, and more. Pay your respects to at risk species such as American gromwell, giant yellow hyssop, prairie turnip, p lains
muhly grass, and others. Discover how restoration efforts can peacefully co-exist with Managed Forest Land areas, and see what
only ten years of steady restoration work, regular seed collection and dispersal, coupled with relentless invasive species control,
and prescribed fire, can accomplish. RSVP
