The Wisconsin Landscape, Badger Prairie and What the 1930s Bordner Survey Map Tell Us

April 18, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Free

Please join the Sauk Prairie Conservation Alliance as we welcome Dr. David Mladenoff, a professor of forest ecology at UW-Madison. Dr. Mladenoff and colleagues have spent the last several years on GIS digitizing the Bordner Survey maps (Wisconsin Land Economic Inventory), which was done in great detail for the entire state. This new complete picture of the state at the important time period of the 1930s provides an important snapshot of the landscape and its change. We will also see in detail, using the Badger Prairie area, how the Bordner represents what was there, compared to other information sources.

This presentation is part of the Sauk Prairie Conservation Alliance’s “We Are Sauk Prairie” program series and is made possible with the generous financial support from the Alliant Energy Foundation. Refreshments will be provided during the programming.
