The Many Rivers Chapter was recently featured on the Minnesota DNR’s Prairie Pod podcast. Chapter chair Henry Panowitsch represented TPE on the episode titled “A Legacy of Love for the Prairie Landscape: A Landowner’s Perspective.”

Henry kicks off the discussion by pointing out that “it’s never too late to do the right thing.”  He shares some lessons learned from decades of volunteering and strategies to involve all generations in restoring the landscape.  You will also hear what motivates Henry and his fellow Prairie Enthusiasts, and why he feels that “the ‘P’ in ‘prairie’ stands for ‘patience’.”  Don’t miss it!
