About This Area

This area is predominantly native prairie. Restoration efforts are underway to remove tall fescue and other invasive shrubs species, such as multiflora rose.

The tall grasses found within this prairie provide over-wintering habitat for short-eared owls and northern harriers.

Bottomland woodland can be found along the stream.
