Burns Prairie Preserve

Located on Mount Zion Road in Galien Township, Burns Prairie is a 12.25-acre nature preserve that includes prairie, wetlands and woodland. The preserve boasts native prairie grasses, and at points in the summer, an abundance of wildflowers in bloom. 

The land that is now Burns Prairie was donated to Chikaming Open Lands by Lloyd and Pat Burns in 2012. At the time, the property was a fallow agricultural field. In partnership with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, Chikaming Open Lands restored the land to a native prairie, and created an acre of re-established wetland in a seasonal drainage area.

Currently, there are no trails at Burn Prairie Preserve. Due to the sensitive nature of the property and ongoing restoration efforts, we ask that you contact us if you wish to visit and tour the nature preserve.
