Along the way, she will talks about volunteers, youth volunteers and the power of the prairie.

And truly, more and more, I am beginning to think he power of the people volunteering is what will form Midewin into a natural place of note. As it should be for the largest wild space near Chicago.

To reach Cisneros to volunteer or with volunteering questions, e-mail acisneros@tnc.org or call (815) 423-2149.
