The Range, located west of Salina, encompasses a large and uniquely preserved example of Dakota Sandhills tallgrass prairie with good quality grassland communities. The nearly 34,000 acres is a valuable reservoir of biological diversity for the Great Plains. This is a rare opportunity to visit this site, which is normally not open to the public.
