Linden’s Prairie, Lawrence CountyPosted: November 2, 2014 at 9:52 pm
Linden’s Prairie is a 171-acre original prairie in Lawrence County near the town of Mt. Vernon. It was purchased in 2014 and named for Ms. Linden Trial, an MPF member and dragonfly and damselfly researcher for the Missouri Department of Conservation. Funds from a generous bequest from Linden Trial and a grant from the Robert J. Trulaske, Jr., Family Foundation made the purchase possible. The prairie had been owned, protected and managed by the Cox Family for generations. The prairie is known for its high native prairie plant quality.
