This 160 acre Conservation area was deeded to the Department in 1980 and acquired via life estate after the death of Leda J. Sears in 1990. Mrs. Sears intended the property be used as a sanctuary for all wildlife, and to the extent possible for the benefit and preservation of the Greater Prairie Chicken. Although Greater Prairie Chickens are no longer found in the vicinity, restoration and management of the native grassland community is the management priority.Audrain County was mostly prairie at the time of the earliest European settlement. The Frank and Leda J. Sears Memorial Conservation Area offers a glimpse of what the tallgrass prairie would have looked like over much of Audrain County's historic landscape.
