  • Why Prairie Matters » Missouri Prairie Foundation | Prairies Now and Forever
    husbanding precious water This water is released at measured rates to sustain the system When native grass cover is lost water runs off the land surface in a destructive torrent that rends the landscape parched shortly thereafter even as the runoff races southward carrying the region s fertility to ultimately poison the Gulf of Mexico Prairie matters because here are the roots of our very identity in this part of the world a region where human history has been shaped by and in turn shaped our grassland heritage since the first people entered the landscape more than 10 000 years ago following on the heels of the retreating ice sheets Grasslands have disproportionately shaped our history and prosperity as a culture becoming victims of their own success as society exploited the fertile prairie soils that were created by thousands of years of luxuriantly deep rooted perennial vegetation As one of the most productive and diverse phases of the planet s temperate grasslands was vanquished America became the world s breadbasket reaping the accumulated subterranean wealth of our grassland heritage This was the latest aria in the human agrarian opera that premiered some 14 000 years ago with the opening stage being the birth of agriculture in the temperate grasslands of the Old World Replayed on a varying theme during subsequent acts in Africa Asia the Americas and elsewhere the common chorus was the selection and improvement of grasses for food and forage crops resulting in their dominance as direct and indirect providers for humanity s caloric needs As a result temperate grasslands are today the most endangered least conserved of any terrestrial habitat on earth and no temperate grasslands are more imperiled than our tallgrass prairies Prairie matters from a practical perspective We depend on these biological systems prairies and associated communities to sustain us as a people meeting human needs through healthy productive soils clean and abundant waters pollinator reservoirs flood and erosion prevention and countless other amenities which though taken for granted can be prohibitively expensive to re create once system integrity is lost No organisms are better suited than our prairie vegetation for thriving in the unique conditions of this part of the world without the constant fixes of water fertilizer and pesticides required by less adapted species Prairie matters because of its effect on us It defines us as a people and honors our history and heritage Prairies give us a sense of place and identity A crop field in Missouri looks like a crop field in Asia or Europe But our prairie heritage Here is a uniquely American indeed a uniquely Midwestern phenomenon that has shaped and defined us as a people and a region Our prairies are a living link to both the past and future In this we should take pride and recognize the need and responsibility to achieve conservation through sustainable stewardship practices Prairie matters because of its role as part of the diversity of life on earth In the tallgrass prairie
