Sites We Save

Part of TPE's mission is to protect land with remnant prairies and savannas. We have so far protected over 35 sites totaling over 2,273 acres in Wisconsin and Northwest Illinois. Some of these protected lands are owned by TPE, and other lands have conservation easements on them. In addition, we also assist landowners of remnant prairies and savannas with the management and recovery of those sites.
