Meet Our Team

The Board of Directors is responsible for overseeing and facilitating the implementation of the Prairie Conservation Action Plan and in setting out a process for achieving defined plan outcomes.

Two part-time Coordinators conduct the day-to-day business of the PCF, focus members on the PCAP and take a lead role in ensuring that the goals of the PCF are met.

Committees may be established whenever there is a clear and ongoing need to focus PCF efforts around a specific strategy or activity.

The PCF operates by consensus and is not an advocacy organization.
