Potential services
Here we are seeking two different perspectives.
First, if you are a landowner, we want to know what services appeal to your personal values and needs.

Second, if you are not a landowner, we want to know what services you feel are important for TPE to offer, to invest time and resources on providing.

Co-ops are groups of landowners who work together on each other's prairies and savannas.
