Ivan Boyd Prairie Preserve

Located adjacent to and immediately south of the Black Jack Highway Park the Ivan Boyd Prairie Preserve contains some of the best preserved and managed native prairie in Douglas County, Kansas. The preserve is maintained by the Douglas County Department of Public Works under the direction of Dr. Roger Boyd of Baker University.

The site is well known for containing evidence of the wagon ruts caused by travel along the Santa Fe Trail.
