donate to Liberty Prairie Conservation


"Enclosed is a donation in memory of my grandfather...up until the end of his life he relied upon the times he spent paddling to provide mental and spiritual health, physical fitness, and family togetherness. He would be happy knowing that some of his legacy is going to help fight the important battles involved in ensuring that there are places for his grandchildren and great-grandchildren to see great blue herons in the shadow of the city he helped to shape."
