Mission Statement

At Nachusa Grasslands, rare and endangered remnant prairie, woodlands, and wetlands are being reconnected through habitat restoration to create one of the largest and most biologically diverse grasslands in Illinois by protecting native grasses, wildflowers, birds, insects, amphibians, reptiles and mammals.

Description

The Friends of Nachusa Grasslands (Friends) is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization founded in 2008 by volunteers dedicated to providing for the long-term care and management of the project. The Nature Conservancy (TNC) owns and operates Nachusa Grasslands. Over the past thirty years, hundreds of concerned people have invested thousands of hours protecting and restoring remnant prairie at Nachusa Grasslands. Although many more years of effort lie ahead, Nachusa is already one of the most successful restorations in the world. We are now providing for its long-term survival.
