A unified voice promoting native grasslands vegetation.
The Native Grasslands Alliance exists to coalesce existing efforts of member entities and coordinate development of communications, research and other shared resources related to expanding awareness, acceptance and adoption of native grasslands vegetation into public and private working and recreational lands, where practicable.
These are just a few ways you can ENGAGE. Have another idea? Let us know.

The Policy Working Group will identify state and federal policy impediments and develop strategies to address these obstacles, working with state and federal agencies and lawmakers to create and implement native grasslands vegetation-friendly policies. This group will provide guidance to Alliance members on messaging and when, where and how to get engaged.
The Technical Education Working Group will provide information to educate and inform technical advisors and landowners to ensure they have science based information for planning and decision making. The Technical Education Working Group will also develop a strategy for increasing and expanding education efforts and creating opportunities for implementation of training.
The Research Working Group will review existing science and highlight important research findings to support the other working groups. In addition they will identify gaps in knowledge and work to encourage research in those areas and when possible assist in coordinating research with funding opportunities.
The Awareness Working Group will work to expand overall awareness of the value of native grasslands vegetation for improving and maintaining water quality, soil health, soil conservation, carbon sequestration, pollinator and wildlife habitat, forage, recreation and spiritual health.
