Why is Alexander special?
The 43-acre Alexander oak savanna is owned by TPE. It is the best example of the dry prairie and oak savanna remnants in the Western Prairie Ecological Landscape.
We have identified 120 native species on the site, including buffalo bean, kittentails, and prairie turnip, all threatened or special concern in Wisconsin. Previously documented but yet to be rediscovered at the site are the endangered species Carolina anemone (Anemone caroliniana) and prairie bushclover (Lespedeza leptostachya). The prairie turnip was a new discovery in 2018, showing promise for the possible rediscover of the prairie bushclover and Carolina anemone with further site management.
