Flint Hills Map Exhibits

The Flint Hills Map Exhibits are large-scale displays that feature a map defining the boundaries of the Flint Hills region and remaining tallgrass prairie, as well as educational panels that highlight the region's unique science, history, and culture. The exhibits were developed by a grass-roots team of Flint Hills teachers, scientists, community members, and regional experts, inspiring pride and knowledge about this special place.

More Than A Map

Each exhibit is comprised of two parts: a map and educational side panel. The map outlines the boundaries of the Flint Hills ecoregion (natural communities) and physiographic region (land forms). It also highlights the last remaining areas of tallgrass prairie and where the public may access it, as well as offers conventional map features. The educational side panels feature critical facts on how the Flint Hills are the "Last Stand of the Tallgrass Prairie" and original artwork. Three different panels are available depending on the primary audience: elementary, middle or high school/college.
