Iowa once was noted for its rolling hills covered in a sea of grass. Now less than one-tenth of 1 percent of that native grassland remains and what does survives in bits and pieces scattered throughout the state. These eighty acres protected by The Nature Conservancy offer a chance to see virgin prairie, undisturbed since the days when buffalo roamed here.
