Hogback Prairie State Natural Area
Hogback Prairie is a narrow, steep-sided, limestone ridge rising 300 feet above the Kickapoo River and the Citron Valley. It is the dominant feature of this 971-acre site. To the north, west and east the ridge is flanked by dry prairie. To the south, the landscape blends into oak woods and brush prairie. The area supports an unusual mix of plants and animals including rare butterfly species, purple prairie-clover, bird's-foot violets and side oats grama grass. Grassland birds include Sedge Wrens and Bell's Vireo.
