The Friends of Ojibway Prairie

The Friends of Ojibway Prairie is a volunteer organization dedicated to promoting public awareness of the Ojibway Prairie Complex and its unique biological and historical importance. The Friends work closely with the City of Windsor and Ontario Parks to provide assistance with educational programmes, special events and restoration projects.

Everyone is encouraged to come and bring some friends.

Tickets are only $11.20 but they are limited in number and are available through Eventbrite.

Volunteers donate countless hours of work towards improving the park complex every year.

An annual meeting is held each year in April.

Volunteers meet at the Nature Centre each Tuesday between 1:00 and 4:00 pm. to collect, sort and clean seed for prairie restoration projects. Additional volunteers are always welcome!
