During these long winter months, some of the Friends are busy preparing for the 2017 season. Nancy McGill and Curt Caslavka are putting material together for a grant from the Dane County Environmental Council. This grant for $1,878 is to supplement $11,263 that the group has budgeted for land stewardship. Funding would be used to enhance the restoration of native landscapes for which the Friends have taken lead responsibility. These funds would specifically be used to help pay for burning the prairies (pictured below), and for additional professional help in controlling invasive species. A huge thanks to Nancy McGill and Curt Caslavka!
