Prairie Fire Newspaper went on hiatus after the publication of the September 2015 issue. It may return one of these days but until then we will continue to host all of our archived content for your reading pleasure. Many of the articles have held up well over the years. Please contact us if you have any questions, thoughts, or an interest in helping return Prairie Fire to production. We can also be found on Facebook and Twitter. Thank you to all our readers, contributors, and supporters - the quality of Prairie Fire was a reflection of how many people it touched (touches).
All across the country, Richard Louv’s Last Child in the Woods has opened up discussions, spawned reading groups and brought together individuals and organizations with a common interest in conservation and the environment.
Prairie Plains Resource Institute has something positive to offer for the future of Nebraska and the Great Plains. The Academy for Great Plains Restoration and The Prairie School are new programs of the Charles L. Whitney Education Center, presently under construction and located on the scenic Platte River bluffs in Hamilton County, Nebraska (see “Education in a Barn,” Prairie Fire, October 2007). Our aim is to connect people with a regional vision for renewal. This connection will be forged by building on the foundation of Prairie Plains Resource Institute’s time-tested strengths: ecological restoration and land education conducted within a social and cultural framework.
