About This Area

This area is a 40-acre remnant prairie, which was purchased to conserve the prairie grasses and forbs present on the area. It contains a diversity of herbaceous species and several brushy draws.

The prairie is home to a variety of wild flowers as well as numerous grassland bird species. The habitat present is also attractive to quail and rabbits. Management efforts consist mainly of prescribed burning to control woody competition and encourage forbs. A small pond provides some limited fishing opportunities.
