Discovery

This 81-acre wildlife area has been described as a "geological and ecological museum" because of its rare prairie pothole and sedge meadow. A year-long survey at Engeldinger counted 314 species of plants, 19 species of mammals, 15 species of reptiles and amphibians, and 82 species of birds.



Location

It is located 5 miles northeast of Bondurant on Highway 65. A small parking area off NE 120th Street offers access for wildlife viewing and hunting in the area.

Closures

Many exciting park and trail improvements are happening in Polk County thanks in part to the Polk County Water and Land Legacy bond referendum that was supported by voters in November of 2012. This may result in closed recreation areas due to construction. We encourage the public to stay involved and updated on these improvements by regularly visiting our website at http://www.polkcountyiowa.gov/conservation/polk-county-water-and-legacy-bond/project-updates/
