Thank you for visiting. We intend this blog to be a place for NPLT current and former biologists, partners, educators or landowners to compile and document our paths in conserving the ecological life and integrity of the prairie ecosystem.
There are many divergent paths that we take in our professional and personal lives to extend our understanding and connection to this place we dearly love and strive to protect. Creating legally sound easements for conservation minded landowners, putting management plans to work on the ground or providing prescribed fire training to ensure a deep understanding of fire ecology. But also we find ourselves on paths that stir within us our emotional connections to this land. The questions we stumble upon while on a hike, the defeat we feel when we are forced to take ‘two steps back’ and watch years of conservation effort buried in rich farm soil or the inspiration that fills us when we read a passage from A Sand County Almanac. The pendulum swings across a wide spectrum of knowledge, experience, perceptions, mistakes and unanswered questions.
Northern Prairies Land Trust hopes this blog can be a space to share our stories and interact with our prairie community. Thanks for stopping by.
