Goat Prairie Volunteer Day

Ozark Wildlife Area, Jackson County

Wednesday, October 7, 2020

Goat prairies are a unique ecosystem that occur on steep hillsides with a south by southwest exposure here in the Midwest. These prairies remnants are a glimpse of Iowa’s natural heritage and host a diverse set of plants and wildlife. Jackson County Conservation staff are looking for volunteers to help these sensitive areas. On Wednesday October 7th help with prairie restoration by participating in woody plant removal and learning about this native landscape in hands on way. Hand tools will be provided. Volunteers come prepared to hike and preform manual labor. Please dress for the weather, bring work gloves, sturdy shoes, water and a lunch. Volunteers can meet at the Hurstville Interpretive Center at 8:30 am or at the west entrance of the Ozark Wildlife Area at 9:00 am. Registration is Required. Call Jackson County Conservation at (563) 652-3783 or email tony@jacksonccb.com for information or to register. Registration is required 48 hours before event. Social distancing is encouraged.
