Scotch Grove

Once farmland, this area has become 69 acres of restored prairie and seasonal wetlands. The project was undertaken in 1999 by the Twin Rivers chapter of Pheasants Forever and is now owned and managed by the Jones County Conservation Board.  Author of a “Prairie Reunion” and native resident, Barb Scot, sold these 69 acres at a discounted price with the agreement that the area be restored to tall grass prairie.
