About Us

We promote conservation on the Badger Lands through education, prairie restoration, recreation and research.

The former Badger Army Ammunition Plant, located north of Prairie du Sac, has been decommissioned and transferred to four landowners: the Wisconsin DNR, the Ho-Chunk Nation, Dairy Forage Research Center, and the Bluffview Sanitation District. The DNR portion is open to the public for various recreation activities.

The property also features the Museum of Badger Army Ammunition and the Great Sauk State Trail, a popular bike path.
