Rolling Prairie Learning Lab Animal Skins & Skulls
GHF is a non-profit 501(c)(3) land trust organization dedicated to preserving our prairie heritage through education and prairie protection. GHF promotes this mission in northeast Kansas, where populations of the federally threatened Mead's milkweed and the Western Prairie Fringed Orchid can be found on tallgrass prairie remnants. Many of these remnants are in need of protection.
GHF's education Activities, such as the Rolling Prairie Learning Labs, are designed to actively engage children and their parents in learning about, enjoying, and protecting our prairie heritage.
GHF also manages, restores, and protects prairie sites, such as the Snyder Prairie near Mayetta, Kansas.
GHF was founded in 1975. Its resources include the experience of its long-standing Board members through 30 years of accomplishments, which include protecting The Prairie Center in Olathe, Kansas, protecting and managing the Snyder Prairie near Mayetta, Kansas, and providing prairie walks and educational events in partnership with the Kansas Native Plant Society, the Kansas Historical Society, and the KU Natural History Museum.
