The Prairie Enthusiasts

The Prairie Enthusiasts (TPE) is a private organization committed to the protection and management of native prairie and savanna of the Upper Midwest. We have an incorporated, nonprofit status and are a grass roots organization run mainly by volunteers.

The Prairie Enthusiasts differ from other conservation groups in its sole dedication to the preservation of the last remaining pieces of the once vast, now endangered, prairies and savannas of the Upper Midwest through land protection and management.

The Prairie Enthusiasts evolved from small prairie preservation organizations that began in the mid-1970's. We now have 8 chapters in Illinois, Minnesota, and Wisconsin.

The Prairie Enthusiasts' Goals
To ensure the perpetuation of the remaining native prairies and savannas through preservation, restoration, and management.

To educate the public through presentations and publications about our prairie and savanna heritage.

To assist both public agencies and private groups in restoring prairie and savanna communities.
