Land Restoration

Land Restoration Presentation at Sinsinawa

Dubuque Area Congregations United (DACU) will feature Ronald Lindblom, land stewardship director for the Sinsinawa Dominicans, as the speaker for their Tuesday, May 21, meeting at Sinsinawa Mound. Prior to the regular meeting, Lindblom will give a presentation on the land restoration project—specifically the Savanna ecosystem—happening at Sinsinawa Mound. The public is invited to attend the 7 p.m. presentation and, if you wish, stay for the DACU meeting and social time.

Lindblom will share how the land restoration project came about, the significance of it, and the process involved. The project has been underway since December 2018. It involves the selective removal of invasive trees and plants, which constitutes 80 percent of the woody growth in the project area, followed by other restoration phases such as reseeding and introducing a natural fire cycle to the project area. Lindblom will also discuss ways others might similarly care for Earth.
