The greater prairie-chicken, a species of grouse native to the tallgrass prairies of North America, is an Illinois endangered species. We're planning to fix that problem. The Illinois Audubon Society needs your help to sustain a three-year relocation and recovery project.
In these website pages we'd like to tell you more about the Greater Prairie Chicken in Illinois and the efforts to save this bird as well as the science of wildlife conservation and the economic value of this effort to the State of Illinois.
As a public/private initiative, we need your help to meet the private portion of our budget by making a tax-deductible donation to Illinois Audubon. Send donations to Illinois Audubon Society, PO Box 2547 Springfield, Illinois 62708, or donate online.
