Out of the Past

Strong City, Kansas

The Tall Grass prairie Preserve in southern Kansas has a herd of genetically pure American Bison, and is bringing them back from absence in the area. At one time, 130 years ago, more than seventy million of these animals roamed the American prairie. They have lived here for many generations, and the herd is back up over 70 animals. This scene is an attempt at demonstrating what the area must have looked like in 1870.

Native tall grass prairie is such a beautiful system, and there is so little of it left. Thanks for sharing this Michael.

I can almost see the massive herds filling the plain. Thanks for sharing, Michael!

Captures the space and certainly looks timeless - hope the regeneration works
