MPF organizes and hosts more than a dozen events around the state every year to provide opportunities for our members and the general public to enjoy and learn about Missouri's grassland natural communities, including events targeted specifically to educators. Events include our Prairie BioBlitz, campouts, guided prairie hikes, seed collecting outings, lectures, tours and native landscaping workshops. In 2016, its 50th Anniversary year, MPF founded National Prairie Day (first Saturday of June), providing an opportunity for groups and citizens nationwide to highlight the important of native grassland conservation.
Increased understanding by the general public, MPF members, educators and students of the importance of prairie, savanna, glade natural resources, and their conservation in Missouri. Increase in number of acres of prairie purchased by MPF or other conservation groups, and/or more prairie conservation efforts on the part of individual, private landowners. Increased membership in our organization would serve as an indication of the number of people reached who are interested enough and care enough about native grassland conservation to become members. Additionally, the increased demand for native plants for landscaping would be an indication of the success of the reach of our Grow Native! program.
In 2016, MPF came very close to attracting and retaining 2,000 members, up several hundred from five years ago. Our Facebook followers have grown from 1,500 at the beginning of 2015 to 2,954 as of February 27, 2017. In 2012, there were 60 landscaping and native plant professionals who were Grow Native! Professional Members; today we have 133.
