Bird Runner Wildlife Refuge is a 320-acre working cattle ranch and native-prairie preserve, located in the McDowell Creek community in the Flint Hills of Kansas. Known for its cattle ranches, the Flint Hills comprise the largest swath of native tall grass prairie remaining in the world, about 5 million acres. It is that rare place where people can experience tall grass prairie on a landscape scale.
Bird Runner is not a commercial venture and does not rent out accommodations. However, Bird Runner is the home base for Prairie Heritage, Inc., a non-profit corporation under whose auspices people may visit the prairie. Prairie Heritage is dedicated to the preservation of the prairie and its stories. It is also committed to fostering a prairie culture for today - a shared and unfolding discovery of the prairie.
