July is Minnesota State Grassland Month!

Why protect native prairie?

Prior to European settlement, Minnesota had more than 18 million acres of prairie.  Our prairie was part of the largest ecosystem in North America, stretching from Canada to Mexico and from the Rocky Mountains to Indiana.  A wealth of diverse species, habitats, and cultures thrived there.  Today, less than two percent of Minnesota’s native prairie remains.  It is the most endangered habitat in North America.  In honor of Minnesota Grassland Month, the Department of Natural Resources has donated to the library a large selection of new books on native prairie landscapes.  Come check them out and see how you can help preserve what is left of our natural prairie land!
