America's Prairie

Rolling hills, history, and wildlife

When Western settlers crossed the continent, they were awed by the sea of head-high grasses they encountered. Of the 400,000 square miles of wildflower-splashed tallgrass prairie that once covered North America, less than four percent remains today, mostly in the Flint Hills of northeastern Kansas. America’s shortgrass prairie has fared better and still covers tens of thousands of square miles of the Great Plains, although much of that habitat has been altered, stressed, and depleted by human activity. The sights, sounds, and stories of the prairie shaped an important part of our country’s history, culture, and legacy. Dig deeply into this rich remnant of the American heartland, with expert guides and interpretation on trips from Off the Beaten Path.
