Prairie Partner News & Announcements
In honor of National Bison Day November 5th,
The New Cragg Cabin is Finished!
We celebrated the new Cragg Cabin June 4th, 2022, and dedicated it to the Education program. We presented the Cabin built of white oak logs to Goose Lake Prairie State Natural Area and IDNR.
Cragg Family descendants joined in the Festivities at the Dedication.
We thank the family for their contribution of red oak wood which was used for roof underlayment and the floors throughout the cabin as well as their support in all our endeavors.
We thank everyone for their assistance and concern. The assistance for the Grant from the State of Illinois by Representative David Welter
was greatly appreciated.
Cabin was erected on the GLPSNA site
by Builder Todd Daggett and his Assistant Ken Daggett. The process of building was shared on our Facebook page. Look for "Goose Lake Prarie Partners Inc" for updates. The Cabin is completed and furniture moved in.
*Kiosk Board Received.
New Kiosk will be on display soon.

in the spring of 2023..
