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.
Volunteers donate countless hours of work towards improving the park complex every year. The Friends have sponsored an environmental outreach programme, provided equipment for the Nature Centre, ran special events, assisted groups with prairie plantings at several schools and published "Building a Prairie". 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!
Annual membership in the Friends is $300 for life, $20 for clubs, $15 for families, $10 for individuals and $7 for seniors. (Membership Form)
