Prairie Wetland Partnership

Join the Prairie Wetland Partnership inventory! 

All students, staff, and faculty from any University of Minnesota campus or extension who have work, interests, or experiences in prairies or wetlands are invited to join the inventory. Creating a comprehensive inventory of the U of M's prairie and wetland experience is an important step in supporting the long-term success of the state-wide Prairie Conservation Plan (a PDF of the plan is available here).

Your responses will be made available to others in real time at the online Inventory. You do not have to answer all the questions, and you may change them at any time in the future. Please encourage colleagues, lab members, and students to  join by sending them this link:

Thank you for joining us at the Prairie Wetland Partnership networking event!

See Spring 2013 networking event for event notes and summary.

For more information, please email

Thursday May 9, 2013, from 4:30-6pm at the Institute on the Environment commons.

UMN faculty, students, and staff working on prairies or wetlands in any capacity are invited.



This event was generously supported by an Institute on the Environment Mini Grant (PI: Clarence Lehman; student facilitators: Shelby Williams, Jacob Jungers, and Jessica Richardson).

The Prairie and Wetland Partnership was created to develop an inventory of research conducted by workers at the University of Minnesota on prairie and wetland environments. Prairies and wetlands are of interest to a broad swath of fields, and the intent of the Partnership is to reflect this diversity—from science to journalism, engineering to the arts, and history to healthcare.

The goals of the Partnership are to

(1) Connect faculty, staff, and students with shared interests in prairies and wetlands
(2) Develop a contact network and inventory across the University of Minnesota
(3) Identify complementary goals and research questions
(4) Discover new perspectives on current issues
(5) Promote cooperation on future projects
