History

 
 

On 12/17/2001, a 466 acre site in Yellow Medicine County on the South Dakota border was designated as Mound Spring Prairie SNA. In 2013 the Minnesota DNR acquired a 160-acre parcel about one mile southeast of the original site. The new parcel became the South Unit of this SNA.

About

This SNA is comprised of two parcels quite different in character, separated about a mile as the crow flies. It is located within a landscape of rolling hills formed along an ice margin during the late Wisconsinan glaciation, marking an edge where the Des Moines lobe stagnated for a period of time.

About

Dec 7, 2020

This SNA is comprised of two parcels quite different in character, separated about a mile as the crow flies. It is located within a landscape of rolling hills formed along an ice margin during the late Wisconsinan glaciation, marking an edge where the Des Moines lobe stagnated for a period of time. The native prairie remnants here are some of the highest quality in the state.
