Roadside Prairies
In the right locations, the Roadside Management Department plants native prairies within the right of way. These plantings do many things when established:

  • Provide competition against weeds and brush
  • Provide excellent soil stabilization and enhance ground water quality
  • Are low maintenance
  • Provide some habitat for wildlife
  • Are aesthetically pleasing

Roadside prairies are scattered throughout the county, but some of the better locations include:

  • Geode State Park - east side of dam
  • South Prairie Grove Road - about 2 miles North of race tracks
  • Irish Ridge Road - Along Starr's Cave Preserve
  • Golf Course Road
