IDOT Prairie Inventory Reports

Between 2001 and 2003 IDOT (The Illinois Department of Transportation) conducted a survey of prairie remnants where a rail line and road were within 500 feet of each other. The map files and surveys are available on the "Prairie Inventory" tab here:

If you're traveling through an area I have found that checking out some of these narrow remnants can be well worth a stop. Many of them are much larger in person than they appear from satellite imagery. A few of these are now protected as nature preserves but there are also some with no protection that I know of that I haven't seen marked anywhere else. Check it out!
