Founded by the Missouri Prairie Foundation in 2016, National Prairie Day is celebrated the first Saturday of June every year.

Mission

  • Enhance public awareness of what prairie is, educate about its value, and motivate all who learn about prairie to be inspired to support prairie protection, conservation, restoration, enjoyment, and the ecological concepts found there.
  • Create curiosity and celebrate and encourage a national dialogue around the common ground of the historic and current value of prairie.
  • Recognize the vital importance of conserving the original prairie that remains, and the need to reconstruct native grasslands where appropriate.
  • Celebrate what we can learn, and have yet to discover, from prairie.
  • Discover how each of us benefits from this complex ecosystem.
  • Bring together otherwise disparate entities, united on common ground, towards a common goal.

National Insurance Awareness Day
Jun 28 all-day

Insurance is one of those things we forget about until we need it, kind of like a spare tire. This is why National Insurance Awareness Day exists and is celebrated every year on June 28. While the origin of this day is a mystery, what’s widely known is how important insurance is in many aspects of our lives. From car insurance, to life insurance, to home insurance and more, these policies offer a layer of protection to guard us from feeling the harshest of blows by unfortunate events.


WCOWMA and it’s provincial partner associations have partnered with several organizations to offer discounted insurance to you and your company.

Imagine a Day Without Water
Oct 23 all-day
Imagine a Day Without Water

No water to drink, or even to make coffee with. No water to shower, flush the toilet, or do laundry. Hospitals would close without water. Firefighters couldn’t put out fires and farmers couldn’t water their crops.

Some communities in America already know how impossible it is to try to go a day without our most precious resource: Water. But many Americans take water for granted every day. Imagine a Day Without Water 2019 is the fifth annual day to raise awareness and educate America about the value of water.
