History
On June 28, 2014, a 460-acre tract in Rice County was dedicated as the Prairie Creek Wildlife Management Area (WMA). On June 1, 2019, a nearby 161-acre tract was added and became the Engeseth-Rinde Unit of the Prairie Creek WMA. The original tract became the Koester Prairie Unit.

There is a small section of high-quality maple-basswood forest at the western boundary of the unit. It is separated from the oak forest by a farm road not visible on the map. Though out of the way, it should not be missed.
