Prairie Demonstration Site

With over one thousand acres in the Natural Areas, they provide the opportunity to practically demonstrate what native prairie grasses look like and how to replicate them in our own environment.

In May, 2004, we converted a section of grass from a mowed area beside the DeWitt House in the Natural Areas. A sign in front of the site explains the purpose of the demonstration.

These Natural Areas are a wonderful resource to demonstrate how to build more sustainable communities.

    Natural Areas

    The Miami University Natural Areas are located around the campus and while they comprise over 1000 acres with 17 miles of hiking trails, they are not easy to locate. The best way to find them is to view our downloadable map. In these Natural areas you can do many things: hike, jog, research, birdwatch, dog walk, explore, learn, discover, meditate or “just be”. Make this area an important part of your Miami experience.
