You are standing on the south edge of the largest unplowed, protected tract that remains of the 142 million acres of tallgrass prairie grassland that stretched from Canada to the Gulf of Mexico. Today, less than ten percent still exists, found mostly in the Flint and Osage Hills areas of Kansas and Oklahoma.



In an increasingly crowded and noisy world, what you see is an oasis of space and silence. Here you can experience the same beautiful vistas that greeted the earliest human hunters and gatherers many thousands of years ago.



The area is indeed a national treasure: Please treat it with respect.



For additional information about this preserve and its unique history, visit the preserve headquarters gift shop and nature room, another ten miles north on this road. This preserve is owned and managed by The Nature Conservancy, a private, non-profit organization.
