As we prepare to create a new vision for our future, we come to you, our prairie community, to ask for your advice and guidance. You have played an important role in our story, and we will need your help to write the next chapter.
With your help, The Prairie Enthusiasts has grown from a small group of empowered people dedicated to bringing the prairies of the Upper Midwest back to life, to become a flourishing grassroots organization. You have contributed to the beauty and diversity of life on the prairies, oak savannas and related natural communities we collaborate to care for and protect throughout the region. Being a grassroots organization means that you are the source of our strength and vitality.
The collective energy and diverse perspectives of our members and volunteers has made us what we are today and will define our future. That's why we are coming to you now to learn more about who you are, why you care, and what you'd like The Prairie Enthusiasts to become. Surveys were mailed the week of 9/15. Please complete your survey by October 22nd so we can include your feedback in our planning. If you do not receive your survey by 9/20, please let us know so we can check the address we have on file and get another survey sent out. Thank you for taking the time to share your insights. We are truly grateful.
With great appreciation,
