Stoutsburg Savanna Nature Preserve


Stoutsburg Savanna Nature Preserve is a large oak savanna tract encompassing several smaller open areas dominated by prairie vegetation. The east-central portion of the property contains a large stand of impressive prairie grasses standing at least eight feet high.


Grassland

Grasses in areas closer to 1100 North are less exuberant, but the simultaneous presence of plants like rattlesnake master, blazing star, compass plant, and prairie dock make up for it. Standing water can pool for days after a good rain.


Trails

There aren't really any trails, but a dirt lane leads from the gate and soon connects with other lanes that allow access to the interior.
