How To Prepare For Your Visit View All
Rulo Bluffs is a 444-acre eastern deciduous forest that intermingles with Loess Hills prairie overlooking the Missouri River. Two major ecosystems meet on these rugged hills– the cool, shady hardwood forest of the eastern U.S., and the wind-swept, sun-drenched prairie of the Great Plains.
Missouri River forests, such as that found at Rulo Bluffs, provide excellent habitat for migrating songbirds, and nesting habitat for species such as warblers, tanagers, vireos, woodpeckers, and other forest birds. SOme forest nesting birds, such as the ovenbird and Kentucky warbler, require stands of forest with large forest interiors.
Ray Schulenberg donated 284 acres to the Conservancy, who bought 160 more to create the Preserve. We are using fire and manual tree removal to open the prairies and thin the woodland understory, increasing the overall diversity of both plant communities.
Due to the preserve's fragile habitat and rare species, visitation is limited. For further information, call (402) 342-0282, or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
