The Pope Prairie parcel was bought by Heartland Pathways from the Pope family in July 2008. Groups and individuals have been supportive, including the Preservation and Conservation Association (PACA), which provided a Heritage Grant in 2011. The Pope Prairie Preservationists Board was formally organized in 2011, with Michael Sczerba serving as President. The Friends of Pope Prairie group was formed and is open to all interested prairie preservationists.
