Presentation Title: The Minnesota Prairie Conservation Plan

Description:  The Prairie Plan was developed by 10 agency and NGO partners over a decade ago.  It provides a way to coordinate efforts among partners, better plan funding priorities, and creates lines of communication among the partners.  The Prairie Plan is also a very good communications tool for explaining our individual and collective efforts to the public, legislators, potential funders, and others.
