The Tallgrass Prairie Preserve is one of the nation’s newest national preserves. It protects one of the last remaining tallgrass ecosystems in the world. Tallgrass prairie once covered 400,000 square miles of North America, but less than 4% remains, primarily here in Chase County.

Explore over 10,000 acres including five hiking trails, a bison herd, abundant wildlife, catch and release fishing areas, as well as an 1881 historic ranch house, limestone barn and outbuildings, and nearby one room schoolhouse. The Preserve was named one of the Eight Wonders of Kansas in 2008.
