of years ago, the midwestern part of the United States was filled with
prairie land. The land was home to many species of plants and animals.
As people moved westward during the 1800s, these land were plowed under
and large farms were planted in their place. Nowadays, very little
prairie land exists and the plants and animals that once called it home,
have become extinct or severely reduced in population.
