Overview

 
 

Kasota Prairie, not to be confused with nearby Kasota Prairie Scientific and Natural Area, is a 90-acre private preserve in Le Sueur County. It is owned and managed by Covia Corporation, formerly Unimin Corporation, in cooperation with Save the Kasota Prairie, a non-profit, tax-exempt organization. It is open to the public.

Kasota Prairie contains virgin prairie, previously grazed and restored prairie, forested river bluffs, and shoreline of the Minnesota River. It includes four small pockets of one native plant community, Dry Sand - Gravel Prairie (Southern).

Birders can see Eastern Meadowlark and Dickcissel on the prairie, Baltimore Oriole and Great Crested Flycatcher on the bluffs, Belted Kingfisher and Great Blue Heron on the river, and Red-tailed Hawk and Turkey Vulture soaring overhead. Hikers in late May will find hoary puccoon, prairie blue-eyed grass, and prairie violets in bloom.
