Community events and activities
See how local residents enjoy the Reclaimed Mine site in our latest slideshow.
The Reclaimed Flambeau Mine recently underwent its annual prairie burn. The certified and experienced fire crew from Applied Ecological Services (AES) conducted another successful burn of the grassland prairie. Jana Murphy, the Reclaimed Flambeau Mine’s environmental manager, took some magnificent photographs while the crew was at work. The AES crew said this was “the most beautiful burn they had ever seen.”
Award-winning Wisconsin photographer, Jeff Miller, recently documented the wildlife and natural habitat at the site. Here are some samples of what his artistic eye discovered in our own backyard at the reclaimed Flambeau Mine site.
