Waukesha/Milwaukee Chapter Trail Improvement Day

May 18, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm


The Scuppernong Prairie State Natural Area, which grows out of the former Glacial Lake Scuppernong, is one of the oldest of Wisconsin’s State Natural Areas. It is part of the Scuppernong River Habitat Area, which includes  the largest native wet prairie east of the Mississippi. The area hosts significant populations of rare plants and animals and is an important refuge for them.

Join the Waukesha / Milwaukee Chapter of the Ice Age Trail Alliance for a morning of clearing to improve a scenic overlook of this area.  We’ll be pulling buckthorn and plenty of other invasives to help preserve this special place, installing a couple of signage posts and generally sprucing up the area. All tools and training are provided.  You will need work gloves, sturdy shoes or boots, and long pants.  Bring a water bottle and insect repellant and hope we need sunscreen.

Parking is roadside, on the northbound side only at the CTH-N trailhead, or at the nearby Paradise Springs Nature Trail parking lot (State Park vehicle pass required). From Eagle, follow STH-59 west for 1 mile to CTH-N. Go north (right) on N for 1 mile to the IAT crossing.  Watch for the yellow ICE AGE TRAIL EVENT signs.
