Welcome to the Great Plains! One of the Center’s biggest projects is ecotourism. Often disparaged as “fly-over” country, the Great Plains is, in fact, filled with biodiversity, critical habitats, and wonderful opportunities for you to have fun while deeply engaging with nature. You just have to find it. On this page you’re find all our work related to the growing field of nature-based travel called ecotourism. We argue that conservation that works with, instead of against, business, landowners, and communities is a way forward in preserving our rural communities and dwindling wild places. For many locations around the globe, nature-based tourism has provided a way to enrich human communities while protecting cultural heritage and natural areas.
