A Thousand and One Prairies

This website contains a Directory of Prairies with location information and external links for over a thousand prairies, savannas and barrens within the United States and Canada. The sheer number of these links represents a compelling story in conservation and volunteerism.

First time visitors to this website may wish to visit the Introduction.

The Places section contains a series of essays for a few native grasslands that feature a plant, animal or bit of human history associated with them that may be of general interest. Some early classic research in prairie ecology, which often stimulated basic principles in the science of ecology itself, is also presented.

Finally, the Grassland Gallery contains a small gallery of images of prairie plants and landscapes.
