Grasslands National Park is a unique and sensitive habitat, boasting breathtaking views and stunning hiking trails. Established in 1981 and split into two blocks, Grasslands National Park represents the Prairie Grasslands region, protecting a sensitive area of undisturbed dry mixed-grass / shortgrass prairie grassland. The unique landscape and harsh, semi-arid climate provide niches for several adapted plants and animals. The park and surrounding area house the country’s only black-tailed prairie dog colonies. Rare and endangered wildlife found in the park include bison, pronghorns, greater sage-grouses, burrowing owls, brown bears, coyotes, ferruginous hawks, swift foxes, elk, wolverines, prairie rattlesnakes, black-footed ferrets and greater short-horned lizards.
