The Indian Boundary
The Indian Boundary Prairies
was established to preserve the rare Native Illinois Prairies that
exist in Markham and to educate the public about the uniqueness of
Illinois tall grass prairie. There is less than one-tenth of one percent
of prairie left in Illinois.
It is truly remarkable that
there are several hundred acres still in Markham. The largest prairie
site, the Gensburg-Markham Prairie, is just north of the McDonald's
on 159th street and Whipple Ave. It was dedicated as a National
Natural Landmark in 1988. As you can probably tell we are enthused
about our work. For more information regarding The Indian Boundary
Prairies including times and location of upcoming meetings and events
