Where is it?
- The Owsley Prairie is 30 acres of diverse prairie, wetland, and woodland located between Macomb and Colchester, Illinois. Parking is limited, so we ask you to register so we can accommodate enough parking space. The prairie is 2.5 miles west of the McDonough County Extension office.
- Restroom facilities are available at the prairie.
