Eddyville Dunes Sand Prairie

Eddyville Dunes Sand Prairie

55 acres of the Eddyville Dunes are managed by the MCCB.  Here you'll find windblown sand dunes dotted with several open water wetlands and wet meadows.  Located on the outskirts of Eddyville, IA this is one of the most unique sand prairie remnants in the Midwest; an ecosystem that has disappeared from Iowa except for a few small areas around the state.  On a hike over the dunes you can often find rare plants and animals such as prickly pear cactus, pale green orchid, 6-lined race runner lizards and ornate box turtles.
