Grasslands are Home to Many Species of Plants and Animals

Grassland birds, mammals, reptiles, insects, pollinators and other animals depend on the resources grassland plants and spaces provide. Currently 73 grassland-associated species are listed by the state & federal Endangered Species Acts: 14 vertebrates and 59 plants, and 14 invertebrates, including 6 butterfly species.This count does not even include native pollinators and other plants and animals experiencing sharp declines.
