Property tour host, Dave talking about his prairie restoration.
Dave Jacobson hosted a prairie tour at his 160-acre Century Farm north of Sauk Centre for our 2018 Treasured Places event. Prior to the tour, a short program and presentation was held in Alexandria.
Volunteers, landowners, and partners are key to conservation success, so much so, that every year at Treasured Places, we honor a select person of the year for each of these titles. Below are photos of our 2018 honorees and a slide show of the special day.
