A specially designed garden attracts native pollinators and provides an inviting outdoor laboratory for the study and tagging of monarch butterflies. You can traverse through this natural haven via four miles of trails for a chance to see everything from insects, ducks, and hawks to muskrats and deer. Bluestem Prairie SNA:  Bluestem Prairie SNA Bluestem Prairie is an extensive remnant of "a vast sea of natural grassland" that at one time covered the entire Red River valley. It is also one of the highest quality prairie sites in the U.S. Lying within the Glacial Lake Agassiz bed, it contains two significant shorelines, the Norcross and Campbell Standlines. Uplands contain mesic tallgrass prairie, while low swales contain wet blacksoil prairie with sedge meadow and calcareous fen communities. Plant species found here include the rare sticky false asphodel, alkali and slender cordgrass, small white lady slipper, and scirpiform sedge. Rare fauna species include regal fritillary, melissa blue, prairie vole, plains pocket mouse, northern grasshopper mouse, Henslow's sparrow, upland sandpiper, marbled godwit, eastern meadowlark, loggerhead shrike, and greater prairie chicken. Blinds for viewing the prairie chickens' courtship behavior in April are available by reservation through The Nature Conservancy Bluestem Prairie office (218) 498-2679. Visit in early spring, when pasque flowers bloom and prairie chickens boom and dance, and again in late summer to see blazing stars and sunflowers in bloom.
