Paoli Prairies, Verona, WI (2004-06)

In a rural neighborhood near Verona, ERS has planted four 1/2 to 1 acre prairies for four families. We planted these “postage-stamp” prairie gardens with over 100 species. These species-rich prairies are surrounded by less diverse, but larger prairies that neighbors planted in the past 10 years. ERS encourages neighbors to team up in restoring Wisconsin.
