This doe is looking to all of us to keep the Prairie a fit home for her and all the creatures that share it. With the invaluable support of our volunteers and donors, we pledge to continue our best efforts to support all the lives that depend on and benefit from the Prairie, including yours and ours.

As the calendar year closes, we wish you all peace and happiness shared with family and friends.

November Workday Volunteers
November volunteers with a small part of the brush they cut and hauled.









Our November workday was super productive, in part because four new operators were trained to use the brush cutters. They really kept the haulers and dabbers busy. This Saturday, December 15, we will be working in the same area to finish cutting and herbiciding the invasive brush. The prediction is for a mostly sunny, breezy day with a high of 37 degrees. We supply work gloves, tools, instruction, water and answers to all your questions about the Prairie.

The workday is from 10 AM – 1 PM. Come for part or all of it.

We will meet at the Chiwaukee Cottage at 204 -102nd Street
Please park on the south side of 102nd Street.
Lunch at the Cottage after the workday for the volunteers!

Workday cancellations will be posted on our website and Facebook by 8 AM on scheduled workdays. If you are unsure whether a workday will take place, please use good judgment when deciding whether to attend.
