Oliver Prairie, SNA #58 (51/674)

Oliver Prairie is a small, dry hillside prairie remnant in Green County.  As the location is not disclosed by the DNR, it will not be disclosed here.  Permission is required for visiting.

I have found the site to be rather unremarkable, but this is in part due to the late summer season for both of my visits there.  On these occasions, I have noted a relative lack of forb diversity, mainly consisting of goldenrods, asters, and a few gentians.  Big and Little Bluestem were the dominant grasses observed.  Its protection likely stems from its remnant status amongst a sea of agricultural fields.  This is on the revisit list for late spring/early summer 2015.
