Area Tall-Grass Prairies
Much of central Illinois' fertile farmland was once tall-grass prairie. The McLean County Department of Parks and Recreation has three recreated prairies at COMLARA County Park:
- A 30-acre prairie is located at the entrance to the White Oak Area near the Two Cedars Picnic area.
- A 3-acre prairie is located along Shady Hollow Nature Trail.
- A 10-acre recreated prairie is located just northeast of Six Mile Creek Bridge. The Six Mile Creek Prairie has been the site of extensive, cooperative study with Illinois State University's Biology Department.
