Save the Tallgrass Prairie records
Save the Tallgrass Prairie, Inc. (STP) was formed by Northeastern Kansans in January 1973 as "an organization of concerned citizens who wanted to re-establish a small segment of the tallgrass prairie in as natural a condition as is possible" and create a Tallgrass Prairie National Park. The organization was originally known as Prairie National Park Natural History Association. The collection contains newspaper clippings, financial records, correspondence, and legislative records for and against the proposed park and other environmental issues.
