American Prairie National Discovery Center
Like many large-scale parks and protected natural areas across the globe, American Prairie now has a central gathering place for visitors from around the world. That place is called the National Discovery Center, and it is located in Lewistown, Montana, within a short drive to the prairie. The Center is open to the public and eventually will host local, regional, and national activities and programs that stir visitors to love and want to preserve the prairie and all of its inhabitants.
