The area is located along a dirt road so access is somewhat limited depending on road conditions. The grassland consists of mixed prairie grasses and forbs. The 6-acre, seasonal wetland is an excellent resting place for migrating waterfowl during the fall and spring. Many species of ground-nesting birds can be found throughout the restored grassland.
