American Prairie Reserve
Conservation, Habitat, Access
Established in 2001, American Prairie Reserve (APR) provides wildlife viewing, outstanding scenery and a true sense of the wide open. Thriving herds of elk, mule deer, whitetail deer, pronghorn and the majestic American bison can be seen in growing numbers. When complete, the Reserve will span 3.5 million acres of private and public land, making it the largest wildlife reserve in America's lower 48 states.
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.
The Reserve's vast landscape, described by National Geographic as "America's Serengeti," not only benefits wildlife, but the public is welcome on the Reserve, ensuring our children and those who come after have the opportunity to experience an iconic piece of America's natural heritage.
