The 3,600-acre Nachusa Grasslands preserve consists of large remnant prairie, woodlands, and wetlands being reconnected through habitat restoration to create one of the largest and most biologically diverse grasslands in Illinois.
Working hand–in–hand with Conservancy staff, a dynamic community of volunteer stewards collect and plant seeds, manage invasive species, repair wetlands, and conduct controlled burns in order to preserve, protect, and share this precious endangered ecosystem.
Construction on our new Nachusa Visitor Center should be completed by the early winter of 2017.
