The Prairie Restoration Education Module (PREM) is a stand-alone, visitor-operated learning tool that allows landowners, students, researchers and others to investigate and research the various options available for restoring prairie. Located in the exhibit area of the Prairie Wetlands Learning Center, the PREM includes a generous workspace, computer terminal, TV/VCR, files of relevant informational handouts, books, VCR tapes and other resource materials all on prairie restoration.

This project is significant on several levels. Less than one-half of one percent of the original tallgrass prairie remains in the upper Midwest today. Opportunities for restoration today are mostly on private lands, done at landowner expense with assistance from agencies such as the US Fish and Wildlife Service, state Departments of Natural Resources or Natural Resource Conservation Service. It is critical that this information be readily accessible to landowners and students if the tallgrass prairie is to remain a viable habitat through restoration and preservation. The PREM brings together all the programs, resources and materials on prairie restoration to a ?one stop shop? for landowners, students and interested visitors.
