About Perkins Prairie Preserve
Perkins Prairie Preserve is a 30-acre prairie preserve in Greene County, Iowa. Carroll Perkins and Karen Voge-Perkins donated the property, which features gently rolling hills of remnant prairie, to Iowa Natural Heritage Foundation in 2014. It is now owned and stewarded by INHF. Both Carroll and Karen have passed but their legacy lives on through this rare and peaceful remnant prairie.
