  • Discuss and present video of this achievement, including both
  • The opening of the new Great Sauk State Trail and 
  • Plans for our newest state park (3400 acres


IN 1997, WHEN THE U.S. ARMY ANNOUNCED THE DECOMMISSIONING of the 7,400-acre Badger Army Ammunition Plant located between Sauk City and Baraboo, conservation-minded local citizens—what is now the Sauk Prairie Conservation Alliance—promoted a “green vision” for the property.  

In 2001, the 21 stakholders in the Badger Reuse Committee adpoted the “Badger Reuse Plan,”which outlined a conservation-oriented future for the Badger Lands.


  •      The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources is developing and will manage our newest “state park”—the 3,400-acre Sauk Prairie State Recreation Area.
  •     And the new Great Sauk State Trail is now open to bikers and hikers through the Badger Lands.
