Leeper's Prairie Preserve

Leeper's Prairie Preserve was acquired in 1994 as a donation in memory of Lester Leeper.  Forty acres in size, the area is primarily native vegetation with a small creek running through the center.  In 2008 beavers took up residence and created a dam on the creek forming a wetland in the middle of the area.  Leeper's Prairie Preserve is a wildlife refuge, no public hunting or trapping is allowed.


Leepers Prairie is located 3 miles southwest of Clarksville, Iowa at 21657 Ridge Avenue.
