Ambassador Property Workdays

Several times a month, join these regularly scheduled workdays at DALC's ambassador properties and restore invaluable native habitat!

Location: Wild Oaks Preserve, 277 Brunson Rd, Belleville, WI

Upcoming Dates: usually 1st and 3rd Saturdays (see calendar)

Time: 9am - 1pm

Description: Explore the beauty of our newest nature preserve, just north of New Glarus!  Journey into the valley to learn firsthand land stewardship and restoration in a variety of Wisconsin's natural communities, including oak savannas, wetlands, dry prairies, and more. Workday activities here are just as diverse as the wildlife that calls this valley home. These activities include invasive species management, prescribed fire, trash and debris clean-up, plant and animal surveys, and numerous other fun and exciting projects.


The terrain at Wild Oaks can be steep and uneven. You are encouraged to work at your own pace and take plenty of breaks. All the necessary tools and equipment will be provided, but please bring layers, water, a snack, and gloves.


If you're planning to join a workday, please contact Zach Pacana a few days in advance at, and site steward Fil Sanna at 608-636-6222 or


Activities change periodically, so for the latest update, contact Zach.

Driftless Trail Workdays

Join us for a few hours the first Sunday of the month between April and October (and occasional special workdays) to build and maintain segments of the Driftless Trail. This is fun and rewarding work! We will construct the Welsh Hills ridge trail during the spring and fall, and maintain the other trails during the summer. We provide tools and training.
