Preserve Closure Update:
Sibley Prairie Nature Preserve - West Prairie Closed for the Season
December 9, 2019
We have closed the West Prairie preserve for winter 2019-2020. This preserve is prone to flooding, which is the nature of the unique wet prairie community that we are protecting and restoring. In the meantime, you can learn about what makes Lakeplain Wet Prairie special through the Michigan Natural Features Inventory. Check back here for a re-opening announcement in summer 2020.
