Military Ridge Prairie Heritage 2011 Calendar

The 2011 Military Ridge Prairie Heritage Calendar is now out, and has some nice photos of southwestern Wisconsin prairies and savannas. This is an attractive calendar that Katie Abbott has been producing for the past few years. The images are all from local photographers in the Military Ridge area.

We are pleased that several of the photos used came from our Pleasant Valley Conservancy crew. Amanda has a nice fall-color view of the south-slope savanna, Susan has an interesting photo of our November 2010 north woods burn, and Kathie has photos on three separate months: a birds-foot violet bloom on "Kathie's Prairie", a winter snow scene of the White Oak Savanna, and a great mid-summer image of Black Earth Rettenmund Prairie.

This calendar can be used as a simple guide to management, since there is a section each month on suggested work projects. Also some phenology data, plus an extensive table of dates for seed-collecting.

This calendar has been funded by the J.F. New Foundation, the Nature Conservancy, the Prairie Enthusiasts, and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. Thanks, Katie, for a job well done!
