Oklahoma Grasslands

Oklahoma GrasslandsGrasslands are abundant in Oklahoma. Tallgrasses are found in the northern and eastern sections of the state, most notably at the Tallgrass Prairie Preserve, a 39,000-acre property of the Nature Conservancy with free-ranging buffalo, while grasses in the western section are primarily short and mixed. The Black Kettle National Grasslands near Cheyenne in western Oklahoma lies within the limits of the Anadarko Basin, a prolific oil and gas-producing region, giving rise to oil and gas wells on the grasslands, where free-roaming cattle also graze.
