How Can I Help?

Grand Prairie Friends relies on volunteers from the community to help maintain the natural areas in east-central Illinois. Volunteers are also needed in our continuing efforts in education and community outreach. If you are interested in helping GPF through volunteering, please contact volunteer [at] grandprairiefriends [dot] org, or have a look at the Events calendar to see upcoming volunteer opportunities.
