Experience the seasonal beauty found at Holy Wisdom Monastery this fall. Knowledgeable tour guides will share our story of caring for the earth and help participants deepen their relationship with this land. Please register below.
Dr. Amy Alstad is the director of land management and environmental education at Holy Wisdom Monastery. She has a PhD in prairie ecology from UW Madison, almost a decade of professional experience in the field of restoration ecology and a deep-rooted family tradition of restoring and tending prairies that spans four generations.
In addition to Amy, there will be several volunteer tour guides from the Friends of Wisdom Prairie.
We will proceed with the tour in the event of light to moderate rain but cancel for thunderstorms.
Holy Wisdom Monastery acknowledges that Indigenous Nations have called this land home for several thousand years and that, today, 11 tribal Nations live in harmony with the land that is now known as Wisconsin. Further, Holy Wisdom Monastery occupies the ancestral land of the Ho-Chunkgra, People of the Sacred Voice, who today are known as members of the Ho-Chunk Nation. This sacred land is filled with centuries-old stories of Indigenous people and we invite you to join us in reflecting on how their stories and traditional ecological knowledge transform our collective relationship with the land.
This experience is made possible by the dedicated members of Friends of Wisdom Prairie. They offer their time, talent and support to help care for the land and provide education to others.
