The American Prairie Reserve is a massive project to create one of the largest conservation lands in America. It will rival that of the Serengeti and double the size of the State of Connecticut. Privately funded and publicly accessible the prairie is one of the most diverse landscapes in the world.
Our mission is to create and manage a prairie-based wildlife reserve that, when combined with public lands already devoted to wildlife, will protect a unique natural habitat, provide lasting economic benefits and improve public access to and enjoyment of the prairie landscape.
We believe that Montanans, the American public and people everywhere value access to open spaces where plants and animals thrive in their natural environment. We feel the existence of and access to inspirational landscapes like the open prairie will be increasingly desired as world population rises further and land continues to be locked up for the benefit of only a select few. Also, we believe the rich natural heritage of North America’s native prairie is of immeasurable value and should be conserved for the enjoyment and benefit of future generations. We believe a prairie reserve and agricultural enterprise can thrive together.
