Strips of prairie several hundred feet wide cover certain uninhabitable hillsides within the city. Three major strips comprise a total length of about two miles. They support a varied flora. Parts of the area are often burned, but grazing has been absent for half a century. Exact locations are given, and brief notes on some of the flowering plants and insects are included.
