Crocker Springs Ranch is the crown jewel of the tallgrass prairie ecosystem located in the Flint Hills of eastern Kansas. The Flint Hills are distinguished as the region in all of North America with the densest intact tallgrass prairie. These 3,300 acres of scenic rolling hills of natures most prolific native grasses are comprised of bluestem, switchgrass, and Indian grass. This property is right in the heart of what is left of the original 140 million acres of tallgrass prairie, now less than 6 million acres. Wide-open spaces of treeless prairie populated by numerous wildflower species provide unmatched panoramic views in all directions. Unencumbered by buildings the ranch looks much like it did thousands of years ago when it was grazed by bison and home to native Indian tribes. Fittingly two miles of the 48-mile Flint Hills National Scenic Byway (K-177) passes through the ranch.
