The lesser prairie-chicken is part of a complex community that includes diverse plants and wildlife, as well as the many people who live in, own, and care for the prairie landscape.

LPCI works to conserve lesser prairie-chickens by helping the agricultural producers who own and care for much of the land in this prairie grouse’s current range. What’s good for prairie chickens — resilient, productive, healthy prairie habitat — is good for agricultural producers and the rural communities of which they are a part.

That healthy habitat also benefits countless other plants and animals that are part of the prairie community. Learn more about some of the many interdependent members of the prairie community by exploring this section of our website.
