Many years ago, the 52-acre Davis Preserve was drained to allow for farming. With an $886,000 grant contract from the Wisconsin DNR, WCLC is re-establishing the preserve to a high-functioning native wetland. Forestry mowing was completed in June 2019 to remove invasive species, and this video shows wetland scrapes being performed —moving soil to prepare to replant native wetland plant communities, which will be seeded.
