About This Area

This 165-acre area consists primarily of cool- and warm-season grass units interspersed with trees, mostly Osage orange and Black locust. Two small ponds exist, but do not provide any fishing opportunity due to the lack of proper water depth. The area will be managed for grassland species, with an emphasis on the Greater Prairie chicken.
