Flint Hills, Tall Grass Prairie

The Flint Hills is the largest remaining area of native tallgrass prairie in North America. Only 3% of the original tallgrass ecoregion is left in North America, and within this 3% the majority faces numerous threats to it's social, fiscal and biological well being.

With respect and sensitivity towards the region's ranching communities, the Kansas Partners Program offers technical and financial assistance on a variety of practices, all of which benefit both the ranchers' needs and the ecological needs of this important area.
