Our Mission

The Friends of the Indian Boundary Prairies is organized exclusively for educational, scientific, and charitable purposes. Our objectives are for the conservation, ecological restoration, ecological stewardship, and preservation of plants, animals, and natural communities, all in the public interest. We wish to promote public awareness, understanding, education, and appreciation of remnant natural areas, of the rare and diverse species that require protected natural remnants for their survival, and of the natural history of these areas.
