Zumwalt Prairie


This video is not currently available. We apologize for any inconvenience.

The Zumwalt Prairie Preserve is the largest purchase made by the Nature Conservancy in Oregon. This rolling prairie is a fragile ecosystem home to fifteen species of raptors, like the Red Tail Hawk and Short Eared Owl. Ecologists like Dennis Sheehy study the effects of a hundred years of homesteading and cattle grazing to determine how best to manage these delicate grasslands.
