  Get Involved: Lend a Helping Hand

Our team of prairie management volunteers do normal backyard gardening.  Trim the shrubs (to the ground).  Get out the weeds.  Mow the trails.  Gather seeds in the fall.  Run a special event in your area of expertise.  Help with the web site.  Run a science project.  Recruit new donors.  Whichever gift you want to share, we can find a home.  More info
