Email communications are preferred and will usually receive a faster response.
The telephone number for the Friends of Nachusa Grasslands is 708.406.9894. Please call only if emailing is not possible. Leave a voicemail — we will respond, but it may take some time, as we are often out on the prairie when messages arrive.
A Nachusa Visitor Facility is being developed by The Nature Conservancy, which will support self-guided visits of the preserve. It will provide valuable interpretation explaining Nachusa's prairie/woodland/wetland ecosystems and our attempts to protect them, bison information, a short trail, and bathrooms. In addition to a parking lot at the entrance, road "turn offs" around the preserve will accommodate our visitors. The facility is scheduled to open in the fall of 2017.
College Students: If you are planning on attending a workday to earn extra credit or as a class requirement, please discuss your participation with your instructor. You do not need to contact us.
