SWWD Prairie Is In Full Bloom

Our prairie is in full bloom! Over a decade ago, to create a large storage area holding large rain event runoff from Woodbury and parts of Lake Elmo and Oakdale, SWWD purchased low farmland near Dale Road and Woodbury Drive. Since the purchase, the land has been restored to tallgrass prairie. As development marches closer to the prairie, we are working with other local governments to create access and interpretation of this restored gem.
