Kansas City WildLands


Kansas City WildLands

Kansas City WildLands is a coalition of resource professionals, private conservation organizations and conservation minded citizens established to restore and manage the remnants of Kansas City’s original landscape.

 

Relatively undisturbed prairie, glade, savanna and forest natural communities still exist on public lands in the metro area, but they need our help. Over time, many such communities have been overtaken by trees and brush, invaded by exotic plants and deprived of the natural processes that maintained them. In addition to a lack of management, these natural communities also suffer from a lack of recognition and appreciation by urban public. An equally important dual goal of the wildlands coalition is to involve citizen metro communities in the care of these lands that represent Kansas City’s natural heritage.
