Prairies once covered more than 2.1 million acres of Wisconsin. When Europeans settled the area, they destroyed much of it to make way for farming and development. Now only about 10,000 scattered acres of native prairie remain in the state.

When natural ecosystems like prairies are destroyed, the animals, plants, birds and insects that inhabit them disappear too. In 2013, the City of Port Washington established this Prairie Restoration area in order to encourage the return and longevity of species that are native to this region, as well as to preserve the natural history of the state of Wisconsin.
