Searles Prairie Natural Area
Searles Prairie Natural Area, Benton County, is a 10-acre remnant of a 10,000-acre tallgrass prairie that once occupied part of the Springfield Plateau of the Ozark Mountains. Prairie mounds are scattered throughout the natural area and are thought to have originated from wind blown material deposited during earlier glacial periods. Plant species such as big bluestem, little bluestem, prairie cordgrass, and switchgrass occur across the site. Located in the City of Rogers, this natural area provides opportunities for environmental education to school groups and garden clubs. Although located within an urban setting, rare plant species continue to be recorded from this site. Fee title is held by a private landowner.

Hunting is prohibited on this natural area.

Take exit 86 off Interstate 540 in Rogers. Go 2 miles east on U.S. Highway 62. The natural area is located at the junction of Dixieland Road and U.S. Highway 62.
