About our chapter

In 2011, several Prairie Enthusiasts, including Alexandra Handlos, took steps to establish a new chapter of TPE in southeast Wisconsin. Two preliminary meetings were held, the first in Delafield on January 15 and the second in Waukesha on February 15.

On March 26, all interested parties attended the inaugural meeting of the new chapter at the Northside Public Library in Kenosha. Members voted on an official chapter name, officers, and chapter rules. 

After voting, members discussed prairie restoration in southeast Wisconsin and discuss potential sites for future projects.
