Our Mission

Inspiring conservation of grasslands.

Empower

Civic engagement, outdoor exploration, science literacy

Inspire

Curiosity, action, learning, and discovery

Engage

Foster and develop bonds between people and their ecosystems.

“The first step in conserving anything is an awareness of the value of its existence. Without getting to know an animal, plant, or person, one can intellectually respect is right to life but one cannot truly feel its worth or know what is required to save it.”

- Con Slobodchikoff, "Prairie Dogs"
