The dunes were designated a National Natural Landmark in... 1984. This blanket-like rolling grassland provides a scenic backdrop for plenty of wildlife including the migration of the Sandhill Crane. The Sand Hills cover approximately one quarter of the state. The 3,190 acre Canzona Ranch holds large meadows to graze with excellent grass cover.
