Tallgrass prairies once covered more than a third of Missouri; today, less than one percent remains, much of it preserved at Prairie State Park. Visitors to the park see panoramic vistas of swaying grass and ever-changing wildflowers. They also may spot an elk or the parkâ€™s resident bison herd. The parkâ€™s visitor center offers exhibits and interpretive programs designed to inform visitors about the special place.
