Living History Programs
Tallgrass Prairie National Preserve has implemented a new cultural program on weekends during the summer. Come to the Spring Hill Farm and Stock Ranch and experience life from the 1880s by speaking with living history interpreters. You may see farm hands/cowboys building rock walls, roping, honing their carpentry skills, or creating horseshoes. Join in the fun as you help churn butter, make lye soap, do laundry, quilt, or many of the other tasks that were left to the men and women of the ranch.
Tallgrass Prairie National Preserve is always looking for volunteers to share their talents and expertise with our visitors. Have fun and experience life in the "Good Ol' Days". If you would like to be one of our "Very Important People", follow the link to the Volunteer page.
Come Join the Fun!!!

Kansas is tied with Florida for 3rd place in most number of tornadoes per year. This tornado is actually a "smoke devil" spawned from annual spring prairie burns at the preserve. Tallgrass Prairie National Preserve
