Because our geographic area is sparsely populated, we are partnering with other local environmental and conservation organizations to strengthen our efforts. For example, we combine field trips with groups such as the Marquette Chapter of the Ice Age Trail and will actively support work parties in our target areas. We meet quarterly as a Chapter and have both educational and social outings throughout the year. These include prairie walks, seed collecting, and work parties in conjunction with The Prairie Enthusiast (TPE) management agreements.
One of the primary chapter goals is to document and inventory remnant prairies within our geographic area. Private landowners who have a remnant prairie and are interested in management and protection, or landowners who would like help determining if they have prairie and savanna indicator species should contact the Prairie Sands Chapter. Those interested in learning more about their prairie, discussing management options and plans, available support and resources, developing a conservation easement, or making a land donation are encouraged to contact us. And to build such a relationship, please consider attending one of our chapter meetings or educational events listed on the Calendar.
If you love to be outdoors, like learning from other prairie enthusiasts and value the beauty and productivity of the prairie and savanna, please join us.
