The morning wind didn't stop these volunteers from taking back the prairie! Last Saturday, 22 volunteers from near and far showed up at Quigley-Slattery Heritage Prairie to show their hands-on support for the land. It’s days like these that keep me so enthusiastic about our mission- though the wind blew cold in the morning and the terrain was not only rough, but also wet, they kept the smiles on their faces and the enthusiasm high. Hardly a break was taken in the 3 hour time slot! I truly think I have the best job on the planet.

They even put up with me when I say “Thumbs up!”

Thank you to all of our volunteers and partners who came out to lend a hand! What we do wouldn’t be possible without your support and generosity!
