Prairie State Park [MO]
Visitors to the park can experience a walk through prairie grasses that tower above their heads with a chance to view bison and elk. Tallgrass prairie once covered more than a third of Missouri’s landscape. Today less than one percent remains. Prairie State Park, at nearly 4,000 acres, preserves Missouri's largest remaining tallgrass prairie. The park's visitor center is designed to enhance the visitor's "prairie" experience with nature programs, interpretive displays, and hands-on exhibits.
The park offers exhibits, tours, educational programs, and occasional recreational and educational events.
