Celebrating 25 years of protecting land for prairie wildlife!
Southern Plains Land Trust (SPLT) has protected over 60,000 acres of prairie grasslands for wildlife to call home, forever! SPLT’s preserves ﬂourish with wild creatures — such as burrowing owls, golden eagles, pronghorn, prairie dogs, and bison. After years of protecting Heartland’s prairie dog colonies, the populations have rebounded, enabling SPLT to participate in the black-footed ferret recovery program. October 19, 2022 was the historic day, on which 30 ferrets were first reintroduced to our preserve. We are glad to announce that a second reintroduction is happening soon! The charismatic black-footed ferret is among the most endangered mammals in North America.
Please join us in celebrating all of our progress for the prairie!
