Great Plains Nature Center • 6232 E 29th St North • Wichita, KS • Map
The Flint Hills, the largest tallgrass prairie remaining in North America, provides abundant habitat for many grassland wildlife species.
Birds are perhaps the most prominent of these animals. One can find wintering, migratory, and spring-to-summer breeding birds in the Flint Hills grassland. These species range from the iconic, such as the greater prairie-chicken, to the inconspicuous, such as the Ammodramus sparrows. Dr. Jensen will present an array of avifauna characteristic of the Flint Hills and some conservation concerns involving grassland birds in the region.
