As they sought to re-envision their century-old family farm for a new era, the Devine family founded Prairie Oaks as an educational non-profit organization and donated 20 acres of the property to POI. Prairie Oaks honors their legacy of caring for the earth by preserving a distinctive natural habitat, providing a place for experiential learning and reflection and maintaining a sacred space where all who visit can be reminded of who they are and who the world needs them to be.
