Konza Prairie receives NSF funding to upgrade bison grazing experiment

NSF has awarded Konza Prairie Biological Station and the Division of Biology nearly $225,000 to upgrade facilities for the Long-Term Bison Grazing Experiment. The award will provide funds to replace certain section of the Konza Prairie corral area, build 8 additional working pens, provide easier access for researchers along the bison perimeter fence, and additional remote scales to increase frequency of measurements to document seasonal dynamics of body weight.
