“Biological diversity is the key to the maintenance of the world as we know it.”

The Missouri Prairie Foundation (MPF) has founded National Prairie Day, to occur on the first Saturday of June with the National Day Calendar as National Prairie Day. In 2016, National Prairie Day occurs on June 4. This special day will bring annual, national recognition to MPF and National Prairie Day partners as the entities who are enhancing public awareness—on a national scale—of what prairie is and all it has provided and continues to provide to Americans. Our intent is that National Prairie Day will inspire a national dialogue about prairie conservation, restoration, research, and enjoyment. National Prairie Day serves the MPF mission—and all partners who support MPF’s prairie conservation goals—by creating new opportunities to connect with all citizens and encouraging strategic partnerships. MPF’s 7th Annual Prairie BioBiltz will take place on National Prairie Day–see events listing for more information. Watch for more information on National Prairie Day and how you can be involved.
