Friends of the Living Prairie Museum
The Friends of the Living Prairie Museum exist to support the Living Prairie Museum in fulfilling its mission of conservation and education through fundraising, promotion, and maintenance of the preserve. The Friends seek funding for special projects, such as prairie seed propagation and pollinator conservation, while also funding the wages of student prairie technicians in the summer. The Friends assist in habitat maintenance through volunteer events, including seed collecting, plantings, weed pull parties, and brush and waste removal.
Friends of the Living Prairie Museum also engage the public through community events. Public outreach, including refreshment sales at museum events, distributing free milkweed for monarch butterflies, and promoting museum programs and special events, helps to introduce the museum to new visitors and potential members.
