Battle Creek Grassland

The Battle Creek grassland comprises 78 acres of prairie habitat that supports nesting species such as Dickcissels, Bobolinks, Henslow’s Sparrows, and other specialities, and is surprisingly located near the St. Paul urban area. Various concerned individuals and organizations are hoping to have this unique and critical resource protected.

The attached fact sheet was compiled by Julian Sellers, John Zakelj, and Catherine Zimmer, in October 2021. Additional individuals involved in this effort are Carrol Henderson and myself. We are grateful for support from members of Friends of the Minnesota River, specifically Colleen O’Connor Toberman and Alex Roth.
