One of the most recent organizations to join the Bremen Township team is the Friends of the Indian Boundary Prairies. This is a volunteer organization that helps promote public awareness, understanding, education and appreciation of our remnant natural areas. Within our boundaries we still have a cluster of five protected high quality native grasslands one of which has been named a National Natural Landmark by the U.S. Department of the Interior because of its importance as a natural asset which includes some of the finest tall grass prairie preserves in the Midwest.
We welcome this organization with open arms as they regroup after the toll the pandemic has affected them, and wish them all the best in continuing with their important mission. Working and collaborating together will be beneficial to both the Friends and the residents as they will be presenting programs and educating our residents about the natural areas within the township. This Spring new native grasses and seedlings will be planted throughout our walking path to restore areas that attract endangered wildlife such as the Monarch butterfly.
Newcomers are always welcome to join with us in preserving and learning more about our natural resources. To learn more about joining us, information can be found at email@example.com, or call our office at (708) 687-8220 or follow them at Friends of the Indian Boundaries on Facebook.
