One of the fine prairie restorations along the North Branch is Wayside Woods Prairie. A former baseball diamond is now covered with prairie flowers joining two small, high quality prairie remnants. Many of the classic prairie plants are found here, including grasses such as big bluestem, switch grass and northern dropseed, stiff and Riddell’s goldenrods, tall coreopsis, prairie dock, compass plant and many others.
