A Most Misunderstood Landscape (Now through October 2018)

The native grasslands of the Southern High Plains are disappearing. Explore the Landmark's efforts to restore the prarie through this new exhibit.

The grasslands of the Great Plains in their native state were a mix of short, tall, and mixed grass prairies that supported abundant plant and animal communities. They covered approximately 40% of the United States. Grasslands were the nation’s largest ecosystem and now are the one most in danger of disappearing.

Our newest exhibit explores the importance of this vast ecosystem, and the ongoing efforts to restore the prairie that makes up the Landmark.
