A new project by Wildlife Forever, Prairie City USA, is working to address the loss of pollinators and prairie habitat in Minnesota and across the United States.
The mission of Prairie City USA is “Building stronger communities through integrated prairie habitat, conservation best practices and civic leadership.” The program was created out of need to make prairie common again in a region where less than 1% of its original range remains, due to urban development and agricultural land use. This fragmentation has resulted in the drastic reduction and endangerment of wildlife and pollinators that still depend on prairie ecosystems for survival.
Wildlife Forever works to Protect Minnesota's lakes from aquatic invasive species with the Clean Drain Dry Initiative TM. Education and outreach throughout Minnesota and the entire US works to remind boaters, anglers, and recreationalists of the importance of preventing the spread of invasive species.
