A tour of the American Prairie National Discovery Center in Lewistown, Montana


Since 2004, American Prairie’s goal has been to create the largest nature preserve in the contiguous United States. And late last year, the organization opened a National Discovery Center in Lewistown where visitors can learn about the importance of grassland ecosystems and efforts to conserve them.

“It is a unique place to have a National Discovery Center,” said David Cunningham, the center’s director. “But we wanted to be fairly close to the Prairie so we can get people to come in here to learn more. And then it’s just a hop, skip, and a jump up to the area the Prairie is.”
