Much of the United States once supported a vast sea of native prairie grasslands. But in just four years, 5.7 million acres of grasslands were plowed for agricultural development. Today, over 90 percent of the remaining native prairies across the country have been converted to cropland — destroying much of the habitat that the western meadowlark depends on.

As Congress is poised to begin debate on the 2018 Farm Bill, we need you to speak out today for the western meadowlark, and urge your members of Congress to protect native prairies.

The American Prairie Conservation Act will help to protect grasslands by including a critical “sodsaver” provision in the 2018 Farm Bill. It will reduce current taxpayer-funded incentives to convert our remaining native prairies to cropland.

Help protect western meadowlark habitat by sending a letter to your members of Congress, urging them to sponsor a bill that supports prairie conservation in the Farm Bill before it’s too late.
