Exciting things are happening in grassland conservation and the Central Grasslands Roadmap is helping to spread the word and coordinate actions.

The Central Grasslands Roadmap is “a collaborative guide to increase conservation of North America’s Central Grasslands, which span 500 million acres across Indigenous Lands, Canada, the United States and Mexico.” The Roadmap brings together diverse voices involved in the grasslands and sets goals and principles for working together to protect the North American grasslands. This year’s summit provided an opportunity for sharing ideas and discussion on the priorities for grasslands conservation.

There is an urgent need to engage people with nature. All aspects of it. Not just the pretty bears and cute snakes. Also the realities of it, the death, struggles, and pain. Not only are people losing touch with nature, they are losing touch with the realities of nature.
