Wide open prairies and oak savannas once covered the landscape of the Upper Midwest. Today only a tiny fraction of these fire-dependent ecosystems remain, harboring many specialized and endangered plants and animals in some of the rarest habitats on Earth. Our community of Prairie Enthusiasts strives to protect and manage these complex, beautiful natural areas and help others learn about their importance.
