This is one of a number of significant, albeit small, prairie remnants in Adams County. The site is in the Lexington Plains Ohio Prairie Region. (Prairie Regions of Ohio)
This outstanding Adams County xeric limestone prairie occurs with post and blackjack oak. It has the largest population of rattlesnake-master in the Ohio (plant above); and prairie dock and dense blazingstar are abundant.
Eleven state-listed species on the prairie include spider milkweed, prairie false indigo, pink milkwort and American bluehearts. Little bluestem is the dominant prairie grass.
