Welcome to Prairie River Network's Run/Walk for Wildlife Fundraising Campaign as part of the 2020 Illinois Marathon.

We love wildlife! Fluttering monarch butterflies pollinating the flowers and graceful eagles soaring over our rivers...wildlife inspires and excites us whenever we see them in nature. 

Sadly, much of their habitat has been destroyed. 90% of Illinois' original wetlands have been drained. Deforestation threatens the 75% of Illinois' wildlife that require forest habitat. And our once beautiful rolling prairies have been replaced by farmland and industry.

Together, we can help make a difference. 

Joining our team will help restore wetlands and reconnect rivers to their natural floodplains. With help and support from people like you, we saved 50,000 acres of wetlands along the Mississippi River from being destroyed. You can help build on this success.

Make a donation to the Run for Wildlife Team! Illinois' wildlife can't wait!
