Before the settlers arrived, much of Illinois was covered with prairie. Most of the prairies were eventually plowed under for agricultural use. However, Lockport Prairie was spared due to its uniqueness. The preserve is made up of globally rare dolomite prairie and it is home to several rare plants and insects. Join a naturalist for a guided walk through the prairie to explore this distinctive preserve.
