Prairie Protection

Grassland Heritage Foundation is a land trust devoted to protecting prairies in northeast Kansas. GHF can accept donations from prairie enthusiasts who would like to directly support prairie land protection. GHF can also review protection options with landowners of prairie remnants. 

GHF has a long history of success protecting prairie sites. In 1983, GHF acquired title to The Prairie Center in Olathe, Kansas, a 300-acre park containing 45 acres of virgin prairie. GHF began a campaign to insure permanent protection of The Prairie Center for public recreation and natural heritage education. Through a partnership with The Nature Conservancy, GHF conveyed the property to the Kansas Department of Wildlife and Parks (KDWP) in 1990, while continuing an involvement with the park's management. GHF retained the Roulund-Wagner Prairie, a 3-acre corner of the site. 

GHF also owns and manages the Snyder Prairie north of Topeka. 

GHF's latest acquisition is the Leadplant Prairie near Welda in Anderson County.
