All around, you’ll find nothing but grassy prairie to the edge of the sky at the Tallgrass Prairie National Preserve is a United States National Preserve located in the Flint Hills region of Kansas, north of Strong City. The preserve protects a nationally significant example of the once vast tallgrass prairie ecosystem. Of the 400,000 square miles of tallgrass prairie that once covered the North American continent, less than 4% remains, primarily in the Flint Hills. Since 2009, the preserve has been home to the growing Tallgrass Prairie bison herd.

  1. Also consider the Joseph Williams Tallgrass Prairie, Osage county, OK. Spread over 40,000 acres, holding 2,500 bison and 764 species of plants, it is the most diverse prairie remnant in the U.S.
