The Prairie Peninsula is a complex mosaic of tall-grass prairie and deciduous forest that stretches eastward from the Great Plains to central Indiana.

Formed during early postglacial times by a unique set of climatic factors, the Prairie Peninsula is notable for its long history of environmental variability, which has helped influence human.

More thanha of native tallgrass and mixed-grass prairies are managed by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) in the northern Great Plains. Although prairies in this region evolved with grazing, fire, and climatic variability, management of FWS grasslands often has been passive and involved extended periods of rest.
