Regular Hours

Our visitor center building is open with regular hours, Monday-Friday 8:30 am-4:30 pm, and Saturday-Sunday 8:30 am-12:30 pm. Admission is free.

The trails and grounds are open from sunrise to sunset, seven days a week. We encourage you to come visit our outdoor spaces and enjoy fresh air and naturebring along your family and walk the trails. But dogs, even on leashes, are not allowed on the prairie trails. Drones are only allowed on our property as part of research activities, and flights must be approved by and scheduled with staff.

We are able to provide and protect this amazing landscape only with the help of private donations. If you would like to make a contribution to help us keep the trails open and the prairie thriving, click on the orange “Donate to Protect Tallgrass Prairie” button on the top of this page. Thank you so much for your support!
