Before 1850, the Arizona Strip had a lot of grass which was supposedly as high as a horse's belly. But, overgrazing and changing weather eliminated many of the native plants. At Pipe Springs NM, they are experimenting with growing these native grasses and plants. The aim is to reestablish these native plants, at the National Monument, to their condition before 1850.
