Clean up the Prairie!

Partnering with local scrap metal company

A neighbor approached us not too long ago to buy some fencing (we have been giving away all the fencing that we take down on the property for suggested donations).  When he saw all the scrap metal in the prairie, he offered to take some of it away for us.  He owns a scrap metal company right here in town.  He offered to come and fish through the piles himself and cart any usable material out on his truck.  A financially positive venture for him, and a restorative venture for us - requiring virtually no staff time and resources on our part.

We still need funds to help dispose of the rest of the materials that can't be salvaged, but we are grateful for this local partnership!
