Beyond the Nest

Grassland birds are threatened by severe habitat loss. By restoring high-quality tallgrass prairie and working with neighbors to protect migratory corridors, the Conservancy and our partners are helping grassland birds make a comeback. Meet some of the species that depend on the Grand River Grasslands.

Native birds are thriving at Conservancy-owned prairies in Missouri, according to a new report. Dunn Ranch Prairie received the highest “bird-friendliness score” out of all sites surveyed by the Missouri River Bird Observatory in 2014. Wah’Kon-Tah Prairie and Pawnee Prairie were also in the top seven.
