Prairie Ridge Conservation Park

2406 Berkley Dr., Madison, WI 53719

Prairie Ridge Conservation Park is located in Madison's far southwest side. The original 48 acres of land was purchased by the City of Madison in 1992 using State Stewardship grant money. The remaining 4 acres were acquired in 2003 due to land dedication from the Ice Age Falls Development. Prairie Ridge Conservation Park features steep topography. This topography allowed for steep prairies, a.k.a. goat prairies - as only goats would be able to traverse this steep slope. Help us identify plant species found at Prairie Ridge Conservation Park. We welcome your help in verifying and updating our list. Feel free to send us any notes or information you may have about the plant community at Praire Ridge, including the dates you observe the different species. Features 1.2 miles of trails.
