In 1977, when stewardship activities began, the prairie survived principally as scattered, small openings. Fire suppression, mowing, grazing, and farming on the drier sites had degraded most of the remnant prairie. A few acres of very high quality survived. Now, after years of stewardship at this site, the 70 acre prairie is recovering. Rare prairie plants that have survived here include leadplant, cream false indigo, prairie brome, prairie gentian, hoary puccoon, and dropseed grass.
