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).

In 1995, after years working in the environmental field, Rebecca Wodder became president of American Rivers, the nation’s leading river conservation organization. During her tenure, American Rivers has quadrupled in size, growing from a small group focused largely on Wild and Scenic River designations (still at the core of its work) to a group with the expanded agenda of protecting and restoring all of America’s rivers, so that communities can reap the many benefits of a healthy river, including, but not limited to, better flood protection.
