Prairie Field Trips into Giant

NASA Plum Brook Station

Visitors are invited to this fenced NASA facility, to observe efforts to preserve rare prairie species and restore 3000 acres of original Firelands Prairie

Plum Brook Station Environmental Specialist John Blakeman will lead three 2.5hr field trips through the massive natural prairies and savannas of Plum Brook Station in Erie County, just south of Sandusky.

Pre-registration is required, so that NASA Security can make required badges to be worn while in this secure site. Visitors are encouraged to bring cameras and take photos. Native prairies, savannas, and rare prairie plants will be observed along many miles of interior highway, within the over 8000 acres of this giant aerospace facilities center.
