The Nature Conservancy invites anyone interested in conservation efforts on Zumwalt Prairie Preserve, located on the breaks of the Imnaha River in Northeast Oregon, to attend a volunteer work party Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 15 and 16.

Zumwalt Prairie Preserve is a key part of the largest remaining native bunchgrass prairie in North America, harboring 12,000 acres of abundant prairie habitat, 15,000 acres of canyonlands and 12 miles of creeks with spawning habitat for endangered Snake River steelhead and inland redband trout. Zumwalt is also home to one of the largest concentrations of nesting raptors in North America. Volunteers will be improving and removing fence for wildlife, preparing a prescribed fire unit, and improving/cleaning facilities at this work party.
