A network of engaged citizens, groups, and agencies are needed to protect the clean water flowing through our rivers and streams and safeguarding the natural areas surrounding our river banks for all creatures, big and small, to use and enjoy.
In partnership with other nonprofits, watershed groups, private businesses, and agencies throughout Illinois, Prairie Rivers Network works to increase the capacity and technical skills of watershed groups and river organizations.
