Scuppernong Prairie supports a diversity of wet-mesic prairie species on level, poorly-drained ground in the Scuppernong Basin. Located on the east side of the 3,000 acre Scuppernong Marsh, the flora includes big bluestem, Indian grass, needle grass, blue-joint grass, prairie dropseed, Virginia mountain mint, cream wild indigo, shooting-star, leadplant, compass plant, prairie dock, blue-eyed grass, prairie smoke, and prairie blazing-star. On a low rise in the center of the area and along the east boundary are scattered open-grown bur oaks, typical of this region in pre-settlement times. The large and open nature of the site provides excellent habitat for uncommon grassland birds and butterflies. Scuppernong Prairie is owned by the DNR and was designated a State Natural Area in 1952.
