"As one who has been irrevocably changed by the majesty of the American West, I am inspired by American Prairie Reserve's historic mission to return a vast swath of Montana to the natural beauty first enjoyed by Native Americans and later noted by Lewis and Clark." Ken Burns

The Ken Burns American Heritage Prize will be awarded annually to a distinguished and visionary artist, author, conservationist, educator, filmmaker, historian or scientist whose body of work has advanced our collective understanding of the indomitable American spirit. Of course, it also has been designed to inspire people to help build American Prairie Reserve, the modern-day embodiment of our country's uniquely optimistic, boundless and daring resolve to conserve our iconic landscapes.
