Victoria Glade

This treeless and rocky preserve harbors a unique array of species including several that are generally more commonly found in the desert Southwest, rather than a few miles from the banks of the Mississippi River.

Spiderwort (Tradescantia ohiensis)

Glade Sandwort (Arenaria patula)

Shooting Star (Dodecatheon meadia)

Fremont's Leather Flower (Clematis fremontii)

Flora found at Victoria Glade include more than 300 natural flowering plants, such as this native coreopsis.

To prevent the spread of cedars onto the glade, the Conservancy routinely administers prescribed burns to control the growth of this invasive species.
