Roth Prairie Natural Area
Roth Prairie is a 41-acre tract of tallgrass prairie formerly managed for hay production. Grass species typical of tallgrass prairies dominate the site, such as big bluestem and Indiangrass. Prairie mounds occur across the prairie, some rising up to three feet in height. Such mounds are generally an indication that the prairie has never been plowed or leveled. It has been estimated that prior to settlement, the Arkansas Grand Prairie contained approximately 400,000 acres of prairie. Today less than one percent remain.
