The St. Joseph Wetland project is located on both sides of US 150 on the west edge of St. Joseph.  In 1999, the property owners were approached to determine if they would be interested in selling their property to the Champaign County Soil and Water Conservation District to have it restored.

The District has an excellent display unit that can be used to show soil and water conservation to school children or adult groups.  This versatile, self contained unit is available for group education events. We can bring the unit along with an educational program designed for most any specific group needs.

At the Barnhart Prairie Nature Preserve many different kinds of prairie grasses and flowers can be seen.  The prairie has many mowed pathways to help you enjoy nature. Click on the image above to visit the Barnhart Prarie website.
