Pat and Clint Mauk’s Prairie is located next to Black Swamp Conservancy’s headquarters at 4825 Sugar Ridge Road, Pemberville. The property features thirty acres of native prairie habitat and contains several prairie pothole wetlands. A one-mile public trail runs through the prairie and is open to the public from dawn until dusk. Visitors can park in the lot behind our office. We look forward to the Chronolog site showcasing the seasonal changes of this beautiful prairie.
The Black Swamp Conservancy was founded in 1993 by a group of people alarmed by the rapidly accelerating rate of development in rural northwest Ohio. These concerned citizens recognized the need to protect and enhance the best remaining natural and agricultural areas in this region and to promote responsible stewardship of the land.
