What is the Tallgrass Prairie Preserve and how do you get there?

The Tallgrass Prairie originally covered portions of 14 states and 142 million acres, and was one of North America's largest ecosystems. It exists now only in the Flint Hills of Oklahoma and Kansas. The Tallgrass Prairie Preserve was purchased in 1989 by the Nature Conservancy and consists of the 30,000 acre Barnard Ranch, and approximately 9,000 more acres.
