Welcome to Savanna Springs
Welcome to Savanna Springs A couple
hundred acres lost in the Driftless Area of Southwest Wisconsin. We are
& Preserving Wild
Areas & Wild Things by Teaching youth to appreciate
"Wildness" as part of a healthy land ethic.
A large spring, the site of a Native Americans & French trading post in the 1740's, is now the home of lunker Brown, Rainbow, and Brook Trout. On 1870's Plat Maps our farm was part of a nearly 1 mile native blank spot on the map because of wetlands Rockt terrain and no road access.
We purchased the farm in 1991 and coverted many of the crop lands back to prairie. Since starting Savanna Springs Prairies in the late 90's we have done extensive Reclamation and Restoration of Wetlands, Prairies, & Savannas on our property & have been involved in planting nearly 10 square miles of Prairie locally.
