As you hike this site, reflect on the life Orville and Mary Telford led as they lived on this site until 1986 with no indoor plumbing, and only a wood stove for heat. Whether you visit in March to see the first Pasque flower, or enjoy a crisp October day when the Bottle gentian is in bloom, there is always an array of color on this prairie.
Located on the Altamont end moraine of the Wisconsin glacier, this ridge and pothole native prairie has high and dry as well as low and wet plant and animal species. Rare species include the Showy milkweed, Fragrant false indigo and the Smooth Green Snake.
