Sand Valley Golf Course


Adams Co., WI


June 2014 - present

Jens is directing Sand Valley golf Course in restoring several hundred acres of their property surrounding the golf course. Situated in the Central Sands of Wisconsin, the property was a Red Pine Plantation when work began. The goal of the restoration is to restore the vast sand barrens, black oak savannas and sand prairies that previously thrived in this area. Work includes identification and mapping of natural communities, native plants and invasive species on-site, writing recommendations for restoration and invasive species control, overseeing the restoration activities on-site and assisting in the design process as it relates to restoring and conserving the natural areas on-site. The project has now expanded to include a 7000 acre conservation property which will be restored and managed for native plant communities and habitats for unique and endangered species such as Kirtland’s Warbler and Karner Blue Butterfly.
