$4,000 supporting the Northwest Prairie

by Pacific Rim Institute for Environmental Stewardship


We are building a community of people that care about the Creation and want to put action to their passion. We are restoring a Northwest Prairie on Whidbey Island in Washington. The northwest prairie has been diminished to less than 3% of it's original mass and glory. We use this work to inspire and educate future leaders in Creation Care. This project is part of a larger year-end campaign to raise $30,000. Please help us reach our goal!

First, less than 3% of the northwest prairie ecosystem remains, and even less of it is in good health. Second, our young leaders will be the ones facing the growing environmental issues on ecological, economic and social levels. Through science and faith based education and internships, we hope to give the youth of today the skills, knowledge, and experience they will need to be effective ethical leaders tomorrow.


Our site not only contains a remnant prairie with lots of 'ecological memory', it also has 100 acres of open adjacent land that is ready to be restored! We have a great opportunity to increase prairie resources for restoration all over the Pacific Northwest. This particular campaign contributes to our year end goal of $30,000, which will aid restoration activities and expansion of education programs in the new year.

Long-Term Impact

Ecosystem restoration can be a long process, but that just speaks to the complexity and beauty of creation - as well as the reality that once destroyed, it is not easily regained. Interns and students will gain this knowledge first hand. If our efforts continue, our site could be the largest restored prairie in Whidbey Island, and one of the most comprehensive resources for prairie restoration around the northwest.
