Grasslands are areas dominated by grasses, typically mixed with other herbaceous plants. While they occur naturally in coastal areas and freshwater meadows in Massachusetts, most grasslands in the Commonwealth are human-managed landscapes such as agricultural hayfields or pastures, cultivated grasslands, and airports. Learn about the historical and current state of Massachusetts grassland habitats, the important roles grasslands play in our landscape, and their unique vulnerabilities. We'll also cover grassland birds in the region, related research, and some conservation projects being implemented to support those species.
