The Missouri Prairie Foundation (MPF), a private, nonprofit, 501(c)(3) prairie conservation organization governed by a volunteer board of directors, has become an official sponsor of National Prairie Day.
MPF will promote National Prairie Day by organizing the press releases, activities, outreach, and education events throughout the nation. The organization’s annual bioblitz coincides with National Prairie Day.
MPF is also the founder and leader in promoting National Prairie Day.
The Missouri Prairie Foundation (MPF) has registered the first Saturday of June with the National Events Calendar as National Prairie Day. The intent for establishing this special day is to enhance public awareness of what prairie is, educate about its value, and motivate all who learn about prairie to be inspired to support prairie conservation, restoration, and enjoyment. This will also create curiosity, celebrate and encourage a national dialogue around the common ground of the historic and current value of prairie.
