Blood Run National Landmark

This 178 acre area is one of Iowa’s over looked wonders. Owned by the State Historical Society of Iowa, the Lyon CCB has been managing the area since 1988. This area has significant historical value as it is the largest known site of the Oneota Native American Tribe. Located on this area are 72 burial mounds, a pitted boulder, and an original homestead. This area offers an amazing birding opportunity  on restored prairie as well as upland hunting. Hunters must call the Conservation Board office to obtain permission before the hunting season. Guided tours can be set up by calling the Lyon CCB office at 712-472-2217.
