Thank you for choosing again to be a member of The Prairie Enthusiasts! You are the foundation of TPE, and your support is making a difference. Thank you!
TPE was able to accomplish a lot this past year, including:
- In August of 2018, The Prairie Enthusiasts (TPE) and The Prairie Enthusiasts Trust (PE Trust) earned national recognition by becoming an accredited land trust. This means we have been found to have sound finances, responsible governance, ethical conduct, lasting stewardship, commitment to public trust and conservation excellence. It also means all of our hard work toward Grassroots Conservation in Action has been noticed. The Land Trust Accreditation Commission awarded our accreditation status, signifying its confidence that TPE’s lands are well protected.
- In 2018 alone we protected eight additional sites with about 350 acres of newly acquired properties. This distinction and commitment has been well received. More and more donors are establishing endowments with TPE. In 2018, we saw nearly a $250,000 increase in our Land Management Endowment alone.
We work hard every day to carry the mission of TPE forward. This notoriety and recognition shows how our work is paying off and our approach is on target.
We look forward to renewing your membership in the coming year so that with your help, we can continue to manage and restore the prairies and savannas of the upper Midwest.
