Lyndon Prairie Nature Preserve

Lyndon Prairie Nature Preserve lies within a narrow corridor along an abandoned railroad southwest of Rock Falls. More than 80 native plants, including butterfly weed, shooting stars, Indian grass, asters, milkweeds and pale purple coneflowers are found in this 36-acre nature preserve. Lyndon Prairie is one of the finest and rarest black soil prairies left in Illinois.

The Natural Land Institute purchased the railroad right-of-way in 1990. The Whiteside Natural Area Guardians provide stewardship.

This is a private preserve. Natural Land Institute members may visit with permission. Please call 815/964-6666 or email to request a visit and let us know when you would like to go there.
