|Come for a long hike through various prairie restorations back to remnant dry prairie with the dwarf (cylindrical) blazingstar and endangered real fritillary butterflies. This site is great habitat for many uncommon grassland bird species, so bring binoculars. TPE's Erbe Grassland preserve, and the adjacent Goplin property covers 200 acres in all. Be prepared for a long hike off trail.
What to Bring/Wear: Dress for the weather and bring water. We recommend long pants, sturdy shoes, and a hat. Difficulty: moderate hiking over uneven terrain.
