Geocache Description:

Cache IS NOT at the listed location, but that's a good place to park.

Cache IS located 2617 feet and 79º (east of north) from the listed location.

This projection is through a prairie preservation project. (McKnight Prairie.) You'll find the "gate" to the preserve just to the northeast of the parking area.

In the heat of summer, catch the cooling breeze the pioneers had as they trekked across the prairie. In the fall, observe the pheasants and other fowl hidden among the shades of gold and brown of the prairie and the fields nearby. In the winter, admire the harshness of this windswept land. And during our favorite season, spring, admire the abundance of wildflowers, including the hard-to-find pasque flower and prickly pear. In any season, please note in your log the native flora and fauna as well as their struggle against invasive species.

This cache was placed with the thoughtful permission of the director of the preservation project. Please refer to Guidelines for Geocaching and Letterboxing in the Arb. As you cross the prairie, please stick to the paths (some of which may be overgrown); and do not remove anything except from the cache.
