Prairie Heritage, Inc., is a not-for-profit, 501(c)(3) corporation, dedicated to the preservation of the prairie and its stories. It makes book awards, sponsors workshops, encourages research, organizes history talks, and once a year, together with Juneteenth, leads a wildflower walk on the tall grass prairie.
Prairie Heritage, Inc., is based at Bird Runner Wildlife Refuge, a 320-acre prairie preserve in the Flint Hills of Kansas. Margy Stewart & Ron Young are the caretaker-proprietors. Their half-section of land is part of 5 million acres of native prairie still remaining in the Flint Hills-an ecologically significant expanse of prairie. Their preserve contains 250 acres of native upland prairie and 60 acres of bottomland prairie restoration.
