OUR CHARTER is to protect and enhance biodiversity and carrying capacity, and to create a means of sharing an appreciation for and a sense of belonging to Nature.
To this end, we have recently placed a permanent conservation easement on the property through the Mississippi Valley Conservancy, which will protect this unique place in perpetuity.
NEW! Our newly "constructed" wetland, with native plantings in progress, will be a haven for wildlife of all kinds. And we recently added 6.5 acres of newly planted prairie.
Follow our progress on facebook and our new blog (button on the top) we call the NNR Journal.
No matter the season, the quiet and diverse beauty of Nature Nooks reminds us of our connection with Nature and can restore the Spirit.
