Volunteer For the Wild at Sugar Creek Bluff
Join crew leader Freddy Ragan for an early evening of habitat restoration at beautiful Sugar Creek Bluff State Natural Area. The view can't be beat! The task will be removal of brush at the main prairie remnant to allow native plant species to flourish and feed the pollinators for the benefit of everyone.
The crew will be limited to 10 volunteers to allow for social distancing and maximum safety during the COVID-19 pandemic. Please do not show up without registering in advance. Tools and safety equipment will be provided. You will need to bring: work boots, work gloves, mask, and drinking water.
Please sign-up online at the link below. Our office is currently closed and many of us are out in the field this time of year, so online registration helps to streamline things while we're out. After registering, you will receive a confirmation notice and we will let you know of any changes.
With questions, contact Levi via email or call and leave a message at 608.784.3606 ext 5.
From La Crosse: Follow Hwy 35 (Great River Road) to Ferryville. Go through Ferryville and turn left on N. Buck Creek Road. Follow N. Buck Creek Road to the top of the hill (2 – 3 miles). The trailhead and kiosk is on the left on a gravel road.
Sugar Creek Bluff is located in Crawford County along State Hwy 35 just south of Ferryville. While the property used to be accessed from Lagoon Road, with the addition of new parcels, there is better accessibility to the bluff from both Hwy C and North Buck Creek Road. Look for the Mississippi Valley Conservancy signs.
