Organizational History:
Great Plains Restoration Council (GPRC) is headquartered in Fort Worth, TX, was founded by Jarid Manos during prairie dog rescues in 1997 and became a formal 501(c)(3) in October 1999. GPRC accomplishes its ecological work through its two programs Plains Youth InterACTION and Restoration Not Incarceration. GPRC is expanding operations into Houston with the new project, Restoration Not Incarceration. This work is being accomplished in collaboration with Katy Prairie Conservancy and the Harris County Justice System.

Great Plains Restoration Council was founded out of the awareness that the violence that people do to each other (and often accept into ourselves) often mirrors the violence that people do to the Earth. GPRC works to bring people of all colors, cultures and communities together to help heal themselves through healing our endangered prairies and plains. Ecological Health is for everyone.
