Wildflower Walkabout: Flora Prairie Nature Preserve

This 9.7-acre prairie is owned by the Boone County Conservation District.  Aaron Minson, BCCD restoration technician, will lead us through the dry dolomite prairie, through a small wooded ravine and near several large, spreading bur oaks.  The state endangered wooly milkweed was collected here in 1946 by Egbert Fell. Easy hiking.
