Going Native

Erwin Park is carrying on the tradition of establishing itself as a prairie land restoration destination. Its natural beauty and mystique attracts guests from all around. Whether you go on a nature hike, reserve a camping spot, or ride the mountain bike skills course, you'll appreciate the view. 

Planting is ongoing; please respect the seedlings as they germinate to a full, mature plants.

The seed mix is known as the Blackland Prairie Mix which contains 45 species of wildflowers and grasses.
