Much of the land in the Tall-grass Prairie Preserve was originally settled in 1896 by pioneers from Bukovinia in the western Ukraine. Over 2,000 hectares of tall-grass prairies are protected within this preserve near Tolstoi and Gardenton. It is home to over 150 plant species. From April to October it is in constant metamorphosis. Accessible year-round for hiking and walking with a 1.6 km self-guiding interpretive trail. Vehicle access and some other activities may be limited. On-site signage.
Location: 3.2 km/2 mi east of Tolstoi on PR 209, on the south side of the highway
