Stahl Savanna Project
Event Sunday May 7, 2017
Please join us for the second in our series of programs on oak savannas and how they fit into the original local landscape. The program will begin at 2:00 pm and our speaker will be Randy Powers, native plant expert and owner of Prairie Future Seed Company. Randy will focus on relic savanna plants found in the Hales Corners area and will give ideas for restoration plantings. The event will also feature a walk to neighboring oak trees to brainstorm landscaping ideas. The program is free and open to the public and refreshments will be served.
After Randy's program, attendees are invited to walk through the oak savanna at the Indian Community School, 10405 W. St. Martins Rd., Franklin. The area contains beautiful old oak trees and the school is working to restore the savanna vegetation.
