Organized in 1988, the Whiteside County Natural Area Guardians, is a sub-committee of the Whiteside County Soil and Water Conservation District. The NAG members are devoted to protecting, celebrating, and preserving the natural areas in Whiteside County for present and future generations.
Every year, the Whiteside County Natural Area Guardians, offer scholarships to college students in their junior or senior year who are pursuing a degree in the area of conservation, agriculture, and/or environment. Further information concerning the scholarship is available at: firstname.lastname@example.org. Please see below for the NAGS Scholarship application.
The NAGS meet March-November, on the second Thursday of each month. Spring and Winter meetings are held in Morrison. Summer meetings are held in various outdoor locations. Activities of the Natural Area Guardians include work projects and field trips, prairie burns, prairie tours and plant ID activities. The next meeting is scheduled for May 11, 2023 6:30 p.m. in the meeting room at the Odell Public Library in Morrison.
