The property was purchased in 2003 as a part of the Western Prairie Habitat Restoration Area and consists primarily of grassland habitat (74 acres) with a few small pothole wetland restorations (3 acres). The property is managed as part of the Western Prairie Habitat Restoration Area, a landscape-scale wetland and grassland restoration project.

Management Objectives
