Nice facility to learn about the importance of the prairie grasslands. They have information on the animals and birds that live in the grasslands and several exhibits to see. Great for kids!

I had no idea our country has so much National Grasslands. It is all covered at this one visitor center. The ranger was very informative and friendly. They had a film about the importance of the grasslands and a lot of exhibits.
