Great River Greening Group




Great River Greening leads community-based restoration of prairies, forests, and waters. Our restoration efforts help preserve natural areas, protect clean air and water, and increase access to healthy natural areas and sustainable open space. Working alongside our ecologists, over 38,000 volunteers have helped restore over 15,000 acres of natural habitat. One way we inspire community stewardship is to hold 6-8 community events each spring and fall as well as numerous smaller maintenance projects throughout the year.

We also have programs to train volunteer supervisors, educate landowners, and expose at-risk teens to natural areas and environmental science careers.

Our projects include:

  • Native planting designs for developed and natural areasEcological inventories and restoration management plans for natural areas
  • Plantings of native trees, shrubs, wildflowers, and grasses
  • Restoration and management activities, including exotic species removal, prairie seed collection and sowing, and prescribed burns.
