Open and Useful Land

A wide plain of grass and flowers provide critical space for grazing animals, and an open area for hunting predators, such as hawks and coyotes. In grasslands, fast-growing grasses thrive where frequent natural fire and little water keep shrubs and trees from taking over. 

California grasslands are a threatened habitat, and over the last two hundred years have been converted into agriculture, and fragmented with roads and other development.
