The Shrub Steppe

Explore The Shrub Steppe

An interpretation of Prosser's natural Shrub Steppe environment appears in the second exhibit space.  Shrub Steppe is a type of low-rainfall natural grassland that covers enormous portions of the inland American West.  Although shrub-steppe is arid, it has sufficient moisture to support a cover of perennial grasses and shrubs and is home to a rich variety of flora and fauna.  For thousands of years, the Yakama People lived in balance with this natural environment, which provided them with a bounty of fish, berries, roots and wild game.
