Midewin National Tallgrass Prairie
America's National Forests represent the rich natural heritage of our country. Listen to Tom Brokaw explain their values and why you should become a Friend of the Forestin this public service announcement.
Midewin National Tallgrass Prairie, just 60 miles from Chicago, is the largest single parcel of protected open space in northeastern Illinois. As such, Midewin plays an essential role in restoring a piece of ground back to the splendor of a blooming native tallgrass prairie. Along with local communities, the National Forest Foundation is restoring the once-vibrant prairie to Midewin.
Treasured Landscapes Conservation Campaign
From the rain forests and salmon streams of Southeast Alaska to
the longleaf pines and aquamarine springs of Florida, we are restoring iconic National Forest
locations with our conservation and corporate partners. Thanks to the support of our partners,
our Treasured Landscapes campaign has grown to 14 sites—making an even bigger difference in
support of our National Forests.
