Situated on over 5000 acres, it's home to several of Iowa's native ecosystems. The park is home to several trails to explore the tallgrass prairie, oak savanna, and sedge meadow.
Tallgrass prairie once covered parts of 14 states in the Midwest, including about 85% of Iowa. Today, less than 0.1% of the original tallgrass prairie remains in Iowa.
