About Us

The Prairie Pothole Joint Venture is a partnership among federal, state and non-governmental organizations with a common interest in advancing wetland and grassland conservation for birds. It formed in 1987 as one of the first bird habitat Joint Ventures in the United States. Now, more than 25 years later, it has advanced landscape level scientific tools that allow habitat practitioners to specifically target the most effective and efficient conservation across the broad U.S. Prairie Pothole Landscape. It is only through its strong collaborations among partners and with landowners that its accomplishments are possible.

What’s a Pothole? A depressional wetland formed by a glacier.
